Virtual SolarFest’21: Time for Reinvigorated Actions

Thanks to the performers, presenters & participants for making SolarFest’21 a success!
Movies and music from our virtual stage are available through 7/31/21.
Recordings of the workshops and discussions will be available shortly at SolarFest’21

SolarFest is New England’s most entertaining energy and music festival whose mission is to connect people, the arts, ideas and technology to create a vibrant present and a sustainable future. Last year, for our 25th anniversary, we had to pivot to a virtual festival, continuing this year with fun and free musical performances, live workshops, and powerful group discussions.

Our second online SolarFest is a break from the routine, concentrating on creativity, with meaningful discussions in four key areas that are driving our future: Energy Policy, Decarbonizing, Regenerative Food Systems, and Climate Justice & Activism.
