This weekend’s Ridgestock Music and Sustainability Expo in Nevada City serves up sustainability with a side of music. Now in its 13th year, the festival is essentially the hybrid of a local-music showcase (this year featuring Dead Winter Carpenters, Archilles Wheel, Shakina, Aedryan Gantt and Wonderfunk) and a green expo—complete with speakers, forums and vendors. It also features organic food, farmers and a picnic area. A kids’ program will educate children on various green topics. It takes place at the North Columbia Schoolhouse Cultural Center (17894 Tyler Foote Road in Nevada City). Tickets are $25-$30 for adults and $15 for children.
