The festival dates back to 1969, as a small art class project (“Art Happening”) during which students used art to teach visitors about the realms of activism, wellness and environmental sustainability in an interactive and creative way. Following the United Nations’ recognition of Earth Day in 1970, the event was renamed “Whole Earth Festival” and has since evolved into an enormous, student-run event featuring entertainment, crafters and food.
