6th Annual Pasco Upcycle and Arts Festival
Waste transformed into art at local celebration
The festival runs in conjunction with America Recycles Day – aiming to reduce waste and change perceptions by showcasing how artists can work wonders with a pile of trash and recycled goods.
WHAT: Pasco Upcycle and Arts Festival
WHEN: Saturday, November 6, 2021
WHERE: Sims Park, New Port Richey
“The unique vibe of the event is a combination of art and sustainability,” said Keep Pasco Beautiful Coordinator Kristen King. “I am always amazed at the creativity of our vendors!”
Upcycling is also known as reuse or the transformation of unwanted waste into new materials or products. Many people hear waste reduction and think of the standard household recycling of aluminum cans at the curb, but the options are much broader.
The Pasco Upcycle & Arts Festival is presented by Covanta. The event features a variety of upcycle vendors and artists selling items such as jewelry made from spoons, repurposed furniture and decor made of pallets. Farmer’s Market vendors, plant sales and food trucks will also be available. Live bands will be providing entertainment.
