Abbot Kinney Festival 2007. Artwork by Earl NewmanThe quirky, artistic, and often bohemian Venice, California has had a rich history since it was started in 1905 by Abbot Kinney, a smoking tobacco millionaire that was ironically also asthmatic and a forest conservationist with friend John Muir. Since then, many celebrities have called Venice home, from Jim Morrison way-back-when, to Julia Roberts and Nicolas Cage today.

Each year in late September, local residents and Southern Californians unite on the street named after Venice’s founder, for the annual Abbot Kinney Festival. The event is referred to as Venice’s Ultimate Block Party, and it too is going green this year.

Not only are they requiring all food vendors to use compostable plates and utensils made from corn, but they’ll also have a Green Living Tent set up with so many speakers and presentations that you’ll be able to fill your whole day just by hanging out there.

So mark your calendars for the free festival on September 30 in Venice, California. And keep your eyes peeled for eco-celebs strolling through the festival incognito. With over 100,000 people expected to attend, everyone will want to come out and experience the fun.
