Saturday, May 9th

Whole Earth Festival

The Whole Earth Festival began in 1969 as a small art class project (“Art Happening”) on the UC Davis Quad. The 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 to the Whole Earth Festival, fondly nicknamed as “WEF,” and has since evolved into a free student-run event, attracting over 30,000 visitors annually on Mother’s Day weekend.

Due to the uncertain times brought about by COVID-19, we will be hosting WEF virtually this year. Tune into at 10 am on Saturday, May 9th for a virtual Whole Earth Festival.
