Jun 28, 2013 —  America is known for bleeding red, white, and blue. However, there are more and more green festivals popping up around the country each and every year. Whether they’re food-centric or musically-inclined, eco-friendly parties pack a powerful punch of Mother Earth revelry.

In Chicago, Green Music Fest in Wicker Park affords Second City peeps an opportunity to celebrate nature with an awesome selection of live music every June. Past performers at this botanical bash include Dinosaur Jr. and The Raveonettes, among many others.

Meanwhile, every November Angelenos flock to the aptly-named Green Festival, one of the biggest events of its kind in the country. Jam-packed with film screenings, vegan cooking demonstrations, yoga classes, a sustainable-goods marketplace, and a kids’ zone, there isn’t a more fun and healthy affair in SoCal.

Back in Washington, D.C., Earth Day on the National Mall exemplifies all that’s good in green festivals. Capital city folks rub shoulders with celebrities, civic leaders, and politicians as they participate in a slew of interactive exhibits and renewable-energy demonstrations.

Though it’s unlikely that there will be any green stars or stripes on the American flag anytime soon, it’s become clear that U.S. citizens have a new favorite color.
