The Whole Earth and Watershed Festival and Shasta Living Streets are excited to be bringing to you VIRTUALLY this year:

The 2nd Annual
Wild & Scenic Film Festival – Redding Tour

LOCATION: YOUR HOUSE!

NOW EXTENDED THROUGH SATURDAY!
AUGUST 29TH AT MIDNIGHT

We would have loved to have seen you in-person, but the COVID-19 pandemic has moved us to offer this important film festival as a virtual-live streamed event that also includes additional access to the films for 5 days afterwards!

SECOND ANNUAL
The 2nd annual Virtual Wild and Scenic Film Festival – Redding Tour is a natural extension of the Whole Earth and Watershed Festival and Shasta Living Street’s work to inspire people to act on behalf of the environment ~ both locally and globally.

14 INSPIRING SHORT FILMS – WHERE ACTIVISM COMES ALIVE
This year’s Film Festival will feature 14 inspiring films, ranging from 1 minute to 20 minutes. The line-up includes Hat Creek: A Wild Trout Legacy, a film highlighting the restoration of the trout fishery in Hat Creek. You will also enjoy music from our local record company, Miracle Mile Records, during the program!

We hope that this year’s film selections will ignite your activism and create new partnerships for the work that lies ahead!

MarchFourth is a kaleidoscope of musical and visual energy that inspires the audience in an atmosphere of celebration and joy. This show is a big band experience not to be missed!

“Part New Orleans brass ensemble, part groove-heavy rock group, and part vaudevillian circus, this group unleashes a technicolor experience. – 5280 Magazine

MarchFourth is a 5-piece percussion corps and 6-part brass section plus funky electric bass will take you on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the gypsy camps of eastern Europe to the African jungle by way of Brazil, echoing the deepest grooves of American funk, rock, and jazz then boiling it all together in cinematic fashion with high-stepping stilt-acrobatics and dazzling dancers.

What began as a Fat Tuesday party in Portland, OR on March 4th 2003 appeals to audiences of all ages and musical tastes, and has become one of the nation’s best live touring acts.

ABOUT CALIFORNIA STREET LABS

California Street Labs is a project of Shasta Living Streets.  This project supports our community by making the restored downtown warehouse available to community groups as a place for people to come together to test ideas and actions that build a vibrant downtown and a great city, as our community addresses questions of the 21st century.  The activities and prototypes, shows and entertainment are designed by individuals and groups throughout our region to help people connect, contribute, address challenges and have fun together.

The project began as a one-year pop-up on October 6, 2018.  Nearly 100 artists and groups participated throughout the first year to help restore the space and create popular experiences and activities.   In 2020 the project will continue, with the restored warehouse opened as a public venue once a week, primarily on Saturdays, with one large event per month.  Hours vary.

What we Hope to Achieve at California Street Labs
– Increase activities in downtown
– Create experiences for people to enjoy
– Help connect the many people working to improve our city
– Provide a space to prototype ideas for downtown
– Build resources while major projects are underway

Friday October 26th

MarchFourth is, in a word, FUN!  This is a big-band show not to be missed.  Join us!

“From the first note to the last, the sound was pumping and the fun never stopped… It’s worth noting that there are serious musicians behind all the fun. It’s obvious these guys (and gals) have had lots of training and formal practice. Talented band geeks turned rebels.”   ~ USAToday

Two Wheels North, by Evelyn McDaniel Gibb

In 1909, Vic McDaniel and Ray Francisco, just out of high school, set out from Santa Rosa, California, on second-hand bikes, bound for the great Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition in Seattle. Traveling on dusty roads, roads of logs, of planks, even of corn stalks, and often no roads at all, they pedaled, pushed, and walked a thousand miles north for 54 days. With excitement in their hearts and a good luck billiken in their bedroll, they started out with only $5.65 between them.  Camp was wherever, whenever the sun was gone; food was an occasional meal from a kindly farm wife and what they could fish, hunt, or glean…

Evelyn Gibb, daughter of one of the cyclists, has drawn on her father’s recollections to tell this incredible adventure in his voice.

Family Bicycling Day.  It’s a trail through the city.

kixe_partnership

BRINGING SMILES

On this day a stretch of the city is transformed into a car-free zone for Sunday enjoyment.

Family, friends and neighbors meet and experience the neighborhood in a new way.  Groups across the community come together to celebrate the Garden District neighborhood and complete-streets improvements that help local children walk and bicycle to school.

The stress-free streets created for this event allow area residents to comfortably walk and bicycle with family and friends and learn about places and neighborhood attractions previously unexplored.  This gives people a way to see their neighborhood from a new perspective.  Families enjoy a safe space to gather, play, ride a bike, dance and engage.  Some people will ride a bicycle for the first time. Others will discover they can hula.  All are inspired to get out and enjoy our beautiful local neighborhoods more often.

CELEBRATING SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOL

We will celebrate the difference the complete street improvements have made to families in their daily lives.  The City of Redding, Shasta Safe Routes to School Program, and Sequoia School worked together to identify needed safety improvements and activities.

Learn how our children can be more active in their daily lives with safe crosswalks, traffic calming, protected bike lanes, Walking School Buses, Bike Trains, Crossing Guards, and more!

REDDING IS ON THE CUTTING EDGE.  MAKING CONNECTIONS, INSPIRING CHANGE.

Redding is one of the first cities in the nation to host open street events.  Shasta Living Streets has produced open street events in Redding for six years in collaboration with local agencies and businesses.  When we started we were one of 50 cities in the nation hosting these events to make connections and inspire change.  Now there are 133 cities in the nation with open street programs.

Last summer Anne Thomas was invited to present at the third International Open Street Summit.  The story of Redding’s ongoing program in a relatively small city that has inspired improvements for safe routes for biking and walking, was one of the most popular sessions at the conference.

internatl-summit

COMMUNITY TOGETHER

To create this free public event, Shasta Living Streets and Shasta Safe Routes to School partner  to engage businesses and community groups from across the county to participate.

SEQUOIA MIDDLE SCHOOL

Sequoia Middle School serves students in grades 6 through 8 as well as our 4thand 5th grade music magnet program.  As a five-time California Distinguished School, Sequoia offers rigorous coursework, an award winning music program and competitive sports teams.  The 4th and 5th grade music magnet program showcases strong academics with an emphasis in all music disciplines.  For more information please call 225-0020 or visit the website at sequoia.reddingschools.net.

PUBLIC USE OF A PUBLIC STREET

This is an event where residents will be moving about in the neighborhood and on a street as they can do on any day, but in this case without automobiles on the road.

People will be freely enjoying the neighborhood without the stress of car traffic.  This greatly reduces risks that might normally exist on this roadway and allows people to walk, bicycle, skate and hula – freely and comfortably on a Sunday afternoon.

Safe Streets.  Rader Excavating is the professional team that puts together the traffic plan in cooperation with city officials, and works all day to manage traffic and keep participants safe.

THE MAIN ACTIVITY IS YOU!  THE PEOPLE-POWERED PARADE 

It’s not just about bikes – you can walk with friends, skate, roll or dance.  Throw a Frisbee.  Show off that special bicycle:  the lowrider cruiser, the cargo bike, the family bicycle train, or the fancy street bike.   Bring someone who does not ride often on city streets. Decorate your bike.   Enjoy the people watching.
