What is SolFest? SolFest is the largest fundraising event for the Solar Living Institute, providing you with the chance to gain a wealth of knowledge through diverse workshops, a variety of environmental organizations and businesses, and networking with your peers and associates.  It is also a perfect event to simply kick back relax, socialize, listen to live music, relish organic food, wine, beer and enjoy all the other festivities SolFest has to offer! You’ll go home inspired.

Who’s coming to SolFest? We’ve lined up key speakers such as Rhone Resch, often referred to as “the voice of solar energy”; climate hero Billy Parish of Mosaic, a marketplace for clean energy investing that was recently named one of the world’s 10 most innovative companies; and more to be announced soon.

Who’s playing at SolFest? There will be live music on several stages during the one-day event, headlined by alt-Americana favorites Hot Buttered Rum, innovative acoustic guitarist Alex deGrassi, and the indescribable mixed-tempo dancemaster DJ Dragonfly.
