Welcome, music lovers and sustainability enthusiasts! Avon, Colorado is buzzing with excitement as the AvonLIVE! Concerts in the Park series returns for another incredible summer of live music, delicious food, and community bonding. The Town of Avon is thrilled to share with you how we can all come together to make these events zero waste. Let’s dance, connect with our neighbors, and groove responsibly for a greener future!
- Bring Your Reusable Essentials: Embrace the sustainable spirit by grabbing your reusable water bottle before heading to Harry A. Nottingham Park. With plastic-free practices in place, we invite you to stay hydrated at our Water Monster water filling stations. Remember, each sip from your reusable bottle is a step toward reducing single-use plastic waste. Let’s raise a toast to a cleaner environment!
- Opt for Greener Transportation: Reduce your carbon footprint and make getting to the concerts an eco-friendly adventure. Avon encourages the use of public transportation, walking, or biking to the park. Hop on the local bus, grab your bike, or enjoy a leisurely stroll to the sounds of music. Not only will you contribute to reducing traffic congestion and air pollution, but you’ll also revel in the joy of a sustainable commute.
- Indulge in Local Food Trucks: Delight your taste buds with mouthwatering delights from local food trucks. These culinary masters have joined us in our commitment to sustainability, ensuring their offerings are served with mindful consideration for the environment, such as compostable serviceware. Savor the flavors guilt-free, knowing that the food you enjoy supports local businesses and aligns with our zero waste mission.
- Libations with a Green Twist: The Hahnewald Bar will quench your thirst with an assortment of ice-cold, refreshing libations. In line with our plastic-free event initiative, single-use plastic bottles or cups will not be available. Fear not, for we have an alternative! Choose from a selection of canned products that are not only delicious but also environmentally friendly. Sip, relax, and contribute to a greener AvonLIVE! experience.
- Leave No Trace: To truly embrace zero waste, let’s make sure our beautiful park remains pristine throughout the event. Help us maintain the magic of Harry A. Nottingham Park by practicing “Leave No Trace” principles. Dispose of waste responsibly in designated trash, recycling and compost bins at the Zero Hero tents.
- Spread the Word: While you’re having a fantastic time, let others know about our sustainability efforts. Share your experiences, photos, and stories on social media using the hashtag #AvonForever. Inspire others to join the movement, spread awareness, and encourage everyone to adopt zero waste practices not just at the concerts but in their everyday lives. Together, we can create lasting change!
AvonLIVE! Concerts in the Park is more than just a series of sensational music performances—it’s an opportunity for us to harmonize with nature, celebrate community, and dance our way to a greener future. By embracing zero waste practices at these events, we can ensure that our love for music and the environment go hand in hand.
