The fourth annual Sundown at Ecotrust Concert Series celebrates the intersection of music, green living and community wellbeing. The four-week music series is hosted at Ecotrust’s Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center, located in the heart of Portland’s vibrant Pearl District. The free outdoor concerts bring together top local musical acts and the Innovation Showcase, featuring an exciting group of innovators working in the Pacific Northwest. Described as a farmers market of ideas, the street fair-style exhibition features an inspiring array of nonprofits, businesses, government agencies, and educational institutions who are delivering inventive solutions within conservation and environmentally-responsible enterprise. Our goal is to provide a platform for these organizations to tell their story, share their initiatives and create authentic connections — all to the beat of Portland’s best independent musical acts.
Each concert focuses on a different environmental theme with coordinated information, organizations and intiatives:
Environmental impact is considered in every planning decision. The series features free tap water drinking stations, a compostable-only policy on food and beveragewares, a free bike valet station, a solar/biodiesel/wind power source, and an aggressive recycling and compost-only refuse plan.
