Milwaukee's Office of Environmental Sustainability and Rock the Green, Milwaukee's near-zero waste music festival, will present Milwaukee's 2012 Earth Day Celebration Friday, April 20.

The festivities will take place in the Market Street Corridor adjacent to City Hall starting at 11 a.m.

The event will feature remarks from Mayor Tom Barrett, Alderman Robert Bauman, sustainability presentations and a performance by local musician Evan Christian. 

The stage will be solar-powered and lunch will be provided by local food truck vendors using compostable plates and napkins. Attendees will also have the opportunity to enjoy interactive booths sponsored by sustainable companies.

Veolia Environmental Services will be available to collect any recyclables, compostables and waste on-site.
