• Procession of the Species

Pin It


giraffeThe Procession of the Species is an annual Recycled Arts Festival tradition, celebrating our community and the natural world through art. 

Join in! The Procession is free and open to people of all ages. Participate in the parade dressed as your favorite plant or animal species, or natural element. The Procession parades through the festival on Sunday (June 30) at 11 am, led by a marching band! The Procession culminates in a costume contest on the main stage. We host costume workshops weekly in June where we provide all of the materials and supplies needed to up-cycle and create an amazing costume; come to as many workshops as you'd like. Click here for workshop information. 

Check-in at the Info Booth at the Festival at 10:30 am to join the parade, which lasts approximately 20 minutes.

Procession Costume Workshops

Join us at these free workshops where you can create your own mask/costume for the Procession! We will supply all the materials — mostly repurposed/salvaged materials that were destined for the landfill.

Please register ahead of time — space is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. Attend as many workshops as you'd like.
