Off the Grid will again be bringing its message of youth empowerment in environmental stewardship to the fields of Fort Rodd Hill on Friday, May 24.

The free, family-friendly event will feature live music from Victoria’s own Zerbin and other acts (performing on a stage powered by clean energy), along with food cart fare, exhibits and informational experiences on topics ranging from native habitat restoration to First Nations history and culture.

The festival is held in conjunction with the Victoria Youth Climate Action Summit.

Power generated by bicycles and solar power keep the festival up and running and off the grid. The event is organized by YesBC in partnership with the City of Colwood, Royal Roads University, the Capital Regional District and other partners.

The event is open to the public from 4 to 7:30 p.m.
