The mission of the Lullaby of the Rivers Festival is to awaken and nurture connections to nature in gatherings of all ages by using music and stories that inspire environmental awareness and consciousness.
The annual Earth Day festival features top regional performers playing extraordinary music and telling fabulous tales, plus activities for everyone. It has all the regular festival trimmings including food trucks, vendors, exhibitors, children’s games, raffles, and a Tasting Tent with organic and sustainably-raised food.
One of the highlights of the Lullaby of the Rivers Festival is the Earth Day Fair, where organizations set up booths with information and activities that teach about the outdoors, the creatures that live there, and what we can do to preserve their habitat and ours. Hands-on activities show children — and adults — how to be involved in a way they will remember.

Lullabuddies help implement programs and offer ideas and assistance for carrying out the mission, such as the Lullaby Walk through the backstreets of Vilano Beach.
