We will kick off the festival with the Prayer to the Four Directions led by Daniel Llanes and Susana Almanza of PODER, followed by words of welcome from our Central Texas elected officials. We are very excited and honored to say that Congressman Lloyd Doggett, Central Texas state Representatives, members of the Travis County Commissioners Court, and most of the Austin City Council joining us. Throughout the day, local artists will weave a musical tapestry from threads of hip-hop, RnB, Tejano, Latin, pop, and other styles of music.

1:05 - Prayer to the Four Directions
The Earth Day Festival would not be the same without the opening ceremony to the Four Directions. Daniel Llanes and Susana Almanza will conduct the traditional prayer to the Four Directions to bring blessing and intention to the Earth Day Festival. The ceremony is a contemporary manifestation of a traditional ceremony rooted in Mezo-American tradition that has been done in this area for over 1000 years. It is an honor and call to the elements, of which we are all a part.œ
