What's this Buzz all about?

The Sustainable Buzz festival and fundraiser features the best the bay area has to offer. Come enjoy generous samples of chef-inspired cuisine from local vendors using farm-fresh ingredients and local flavor. Sip on locally brewed craft beer, locally distilled spirits and organic wines. Relax, network or dance to the lively music of local bands. Learn about local sustainability efforts or visit our sustainable living pop-up shop to stock up on unique supplies or gifts.

If you work hard all year at reducing your carbon footprint or simply want to rub elbows with those who do, you’ll want to check out this year’s Sustainable Buzz.
