Pasco EcoFest 2013 IS TAKINGPLACE AT SIMS AND STARKEY PARKS WITH FUN AND EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES FOR EVERYONE

The heart of EcoFest is education and, while we want our guests to have fun and be entertained, we sincerely hope you will leave with new found skills and information that will empower you to live more sustainably and be more connected with your local community.

Experience West Pasco like never before!

J. B. Starkey Wilderness Park

Explore beautiful West Pasco by wading through swamps and learning about native plants and medicinal herbs on nature walks. Experience our native wildlife through interactive exhibits and talks, geocaching, and star gazing. Learn how to live more sustainably with free hands-on workshops. 

Sims Park

Cruise along the Cotee River by kayak or move your body with free yoga, belly dancing and hoop dancing workshops. Expand your mind with urban agriculture and homesteading workshops. Look for a Trash-n-Fashion Photo Shoot, live music and entertainment, and kids games and art projects. Shop locally made, grown and hand crafted goods at the Eco Market, then stroll around Orange Lake to check out the  Local Volks air-cooled VW show & swap meet. Treat yourself to  a cold mug of Big Storm Brewing Co. (locally brewed!) micro-brew and culinary deliciousness provided by select food trucks.


We’re hosting a food drive in partnership with the Rec Center’s Youth Advisory Board and the Wellness Worship Center as part of the Local Volks on the Lake vintage VW show and swap meet. Canned goods may be dropped off between  10 am and 4 pm at the VW show registration tent located on Grand Boulevard between Bank Street and Grand Boulevard.
