A Month for Green Festivals

September 02, 2019

Along with our sister property, Orchard Garden Hotel, we were one of the first hotels in San Francisco to be LEED-certified—and we’re so committed to operating an eco-friendly property that we’ve been named “One of the Top Ten Best Eco-Friendly Hotels in the U.S.” by USA Today. With this in mind, here are suggested events for our guest’s entertainment this month. First, head over to the Presidio on September 21 for the California Vegetarian Food Festival and Symposium. This showcase of vegetarian innovation will feature the newest and most exciting plant-based food and products, along with speakers, demos, and discussions.

This year’s CAVFF beneficiaries of the U.S. Veg. Corp raffle will be Community Grows, whose mission is to cultivate healthy youth by growing gardens in low-income, diverse communities. Next, don’t miss the Ninth Annual San Francisco Green Film Festival happening September 24-29. The leading West Coast event for film and discussions regarding green ideas and actions for change, this year’s festival will feature 50+ new worldwide films, expert panels, and over 100 filmmakers. After a spectacular kick-off at the Castro Theatre, the festival will continue with screenings at other SF venues.
