About the Event

The  Mississippi Earthtones Festival, co-organized by Alton Main Street and  the Sierra Club, is a celebration of our river through art, music, and  conservation. This 15th Annual event falls on September 18th 2021, and  will attract thousands of people to Broadway, where the street will be  closed to traffic between Alton Street and Langdon Street from Noon  until 10:00 p.m.

LIVE MUSIC SCHEDULE: - Jake's Leg - Grateful Dead Tribute (7:00-10:00) - Non Stop Reggae (4:45-6:45) - Raw Earth (3:00-5:00) - Red White & Floyd (2:30-4:30) - Sounds of Syla (12:00-2:00)

- After-party at The Conservatory - 554 E. Broadway, Poor Dirty Astronauts (8:00-Midnight)

There  will be several agencies on hand to teach consumers how to incorporate  more sustainable practices into their daily lives, along with companies  featuring Earth-friendly products and services. A variety of fun and  educational activities are planned for families. Dozens of local  artisans will offer their nature-inspired, hand-made, and  environmentally-friendly wares. Wind-powered music will fill the air  throughout the day! Come hungry because there will be a great selection  of local food & beverages on site. Broadway businesses are preparing  to roll out the red carpet for the crowd, and a number of shops will  have displays and merchandise on the sidewalk.

There  is ample parking for festival attendees in the Farmers’ & Artisans’  Market parking lot, located at 501 Landmarks Blvd.; guests can simply  walk across the pedestrian bridge directly to the event.

This  festival is held annually on the 3rd Saturday in September, as part of  the State of Illinois’ “It’s Our River Day” initiative to celebrate  Illinois watersheds through education, recreation and conservation.
