Attend Whole Earth Festival

Whole Earth Festival, also known as “Art Happening,” began in 1969 with Jose Arguelles and his art class. Following the declaration of Earth Day in 1970 by the United Nations, the second “Art Happening” was renamed “Whole Earth.” Today, WEF happens every Mother’s Day weekend on the UC Davis Quad, where individuals gather for the three day music and education festival. Arts and crafts vendors come to showcase their work at this zero-waste event.
