contribute to creative evo-love-ution


august 5th through september

Say Yes Fest is a conveyor of chances to say YES! A month of Happenings and Art to solve everything, end war and cure anxiety FOREVER!

All are invited to “say yes” to fearlessly expressing their creativity through a variety of mediums and playful civic discourse during a celebratory and revelatory month dedicated to exploring ways to create a society based on Love rather than Profit.

It’s time for over-the-top realness to stir the conscience of our nation—time to strain the anger from our story and drain the disappointment; grief into gasoline and rage into revo-love-ution.

Say Yes Fest is a chance to megaphone the margins & gently shake society from our collective slumber, safely taking us outside our comforts, beyond the binary, into a non-linear cosmic dressing room with unlimited opportunities to unzip our spines and step out; to recast the movie & edit the scripts of our lives.

The People’s Parade

Kerrytown by People's Food Co-Op

The People’s Parade, in conjunction with Planet Parade and Action Network, aims to bring together multiple social movements and grassroots organizations, as well as the local community, for a raucous rally and march, in an attempt to shingle a single roof above our overlapping dreams and persecution so we may scheme and dream together! Attendees are encouraged to bring signs, dress in costumes, and pets are welcome. There will be speakers and performance artists before and after the parade. Invite a friend!

More events coming soon — stay tuned!
