Taking place each year at Woodley Park in the scenic Lake Balboa area of The San Fernando Valley, Worldfest ( is a celebratory event aimed at helping people to learn about the things they can do to protect and preserve the Earth and its inhabitants. It’s fully solar-powered and celebrates the bounties of the Earth from music, to the environment, to people and animals. It is sponsored by a number of health-conscious and environmentally friendly companies, such as Save the Chimps, VegNews Magazine and Green Planet Search.
