The Ecopalooza Project is proud to announce the 2nd annual Ecopalooza concert, a 100% solar-powered Wine and Jazz event raising awareness about clean energy and raising funds for the installation of a solar panel array to a local high School. On Saturday, July 23, 2011, Ecopalooza sponsors Amtrak, The Green Economy, Providence Portland Medical Center, and Gunderson will join music, wine and solar energy lovers to enjoy a concert and wine tasting in Pioneer Square in downtown Portland.

In addition to great food, wine and music, Ecopalooza will set a Guinness World Record for the largest all day 100% solar-powered concert.

Ecopalooza will feature world-renowned jazz performers including Grammy Award winner Shannon Sanders, Grammy-nominated Patrick Lamb and jazz sensation Devin Phillips.

Ecopalooza will raise funds from ticket sales to install a solar energy system at a local school within the Portland Public School District.

In addition, Ecopalooza will be donating a dozen refurbished computers to children within the Portland Community. Green Economy TV hosts Andrew Mallory and Don McCoy will team up with FOX 12 News to capture the event.

    I’d like to attend because my wife and i are new to Portland. We moved to town on the first of July so she could follow her art school dream after a long period of rough health. Upon arriving the job I had lined up fell apart. It would be nice to attend something like this in the midst of both joy and struggle.

    I love wine, jazz and the environment! How perfect! Plus I’m a guinness geek and would love to be part of the record!

  4. Tony July 12, 2011 at 1:28 pm #

    I love learning about clean energy alternatives….and wine is great too!

  5. Faye July 12, 2011 at 1:41 pm #

    I have lived here for almost a year but never take the time to enjoy any of the festivals. I made a promise to myself to enjoy one new thing once a week so this would be great!

    I would be thrilled to win tickets to this because renewable energy is one of my passions. I was born in India, which is a country that struggles greatly with electricity distribution and lack of energy resources. In 2005, I volunteered with a local NGO and traveled to India and Sri Lanka, where I spent 3 weeks working with small villages on helping them achieve better energy efficiency. We installed water turbines and/or solar panels in order to provide these villages with electricity and/or running water. It was a very moving experience.

    Thank you for your consideration!

    I’d like to go because last year I couldn’t and my daughter helped work on it. I need to win a ticket or find a job.

  22. SAL July 14, 2011 at 9:40 am #

    Supporting a local school, while attending an all day solar powered concert is an amazing treat. Food, wine, and meeting new people are all added bonuses. Count my post as an entry.

  23. Kerry July 14, 2011 at 12:15 pm #

  28. Angel July 14, 2011 at 4:47 pm #

    Everytime we go near Pioneer Square my fiance tells me about how he sold them the copper grate thing on one of the buildings you can see from the square. Please give me tickets so he can do what he loves to do. And I can drink while he does it :)

  29. Sarah Elizabeth July 14, 2011 at 4:52 pm #

    I’m interested to check this event out and see what it’s like

  30. Katie July 14, 2011 at 5:18 pm #

    Wine! And jazz! I’ll be warming up my jazz hands.

  31. Lisa July 14, 2011 at 5:39 pm #

    My daughter is out of town that night, so this single mom would love a night out on the town! And that it features solar power, fundraising for a PPS high school to receive solar panels, wine and to hear Devon Phillips play are just icing on the cake.

    Thanks for the consideration!

  32. Eric July 14, 2011 at 5:52 pm #

    Always wanted to witness a world record attempt… I think they’ll pull it off, but you should send me to confirm.

  33. Johnny July 14, 2011 at 6:13 pm #

    As the Sun does not appear to shine in Portland this Summer, Jazz and Wine will warm my soul, perchance to help bring some sunshine to the schools along the way!

    I’d like to go because I haven’t been able to afford to go to any festivals in a long time, and probably won’t be able to for even longer.

  37. April July 14, 2011 at 10:54 pm #

    I like trying new wines and my bf likes jazz. Win for both of us.

  38. Paula(: July 15, 2011 at 12:09 am #

    Why would I like to attend? Solar-powered wine and jazz? Two of my favorite things at the same time!

  40. Sally July 15, 2011 at 7:13 am #

  41. Laurie July 15, 2011 at 7:25 am #

    Would kill for these. Not literally.

  42. Deb July 15, 2011 at 7:31 am #

    We’re an older couple who have built our own solar earth bermed home 25 years ago. We’re always interested in being involved in anything that supports solar!

  43. Jackie in Oregon July 15, 2011 at 7:58 am #

    This event has everything… great causes, eco-mindedness, entertainment… and wine!!! And, I have friends & family in town from Seattle. And, we don’t have anything scheduled that afternoon! Help me show off Portland! Yay!

  44. Andrea July 15, 2011 at 10:12 am #

    My cousin just got in town from Michigan to visit, and I want to show her the best time I can. We both love jazz and the wine tasting doesn’t hurt the appeal. This would be so much fun to do together and would be a memorable experience for both of us.

  45. Kimberly July 15, 2011 at 10:30 am #

    This sounds like a great event!

  46. Carolyn July 15, 2011 at 10:47 am #

    Wine tasting, jazz and solar power? What could be more Portland!

  47. Andrea July 15, 2011 at 11:23 am #

    Sounds like lots of fun for a great cause!

  48. dana r. July 15, 2011 at 2:07 pm #

  49. Salvatore_A. July 15, 2011 at 3:01 pm #

    Did I make it in time? Love me some jazz and eco conscious events and businesses.

  50. Mark A. Santillo July 15, 2011 at 3:23 pm #

    July 23 is my birthday. No one’s given me a birthday present in about 10 years (other than a free burrito from Qdoba). Not even a card. Has the world changed or have I? Whatever the reason, I really miss the fuss. It would be nice to have something special happen on my birthday for old times sake, so I could remember what it’s like to be a kid again.

  51. Ben July 16, 2011 at 12:14 am #

    I just had a dream I drove across country during the apocalypse to find my girl and while I was seeing off my travel buddies on the other coast she found me and we went into a field in the middle of the city where she flashed a bunch a kids and everyone was real sweaty. I like free things. Dreams are free.

  52. jerry July 16, 2011 at 7:52 pm #

    S O L A R! and for schools………hopefully a good clean future for kids…………..yeah, i surely would love some good music and wine for a good cause……………….hope for a couple of those ? love the blog

  53. Christina Collada July 17, 2011 at 10:15 am #

    I like wine and the environment, so I would really like to go to this concert powered by renewable energy sources!

  54. David July 17, 2011 at 11:20 am #

    thanks for the chance!

  55. Ben July 18, 2011 at 1:36 pm #

    I love wine & solar energy, go green!

  56. Shelley A. July 19, 2011 at 9:47 am #

    Ecopalooza Concert, wina and some sunshine, sounds like fun.

  57. malinda July 19, 2011 at 1:59 pm #

    Wine is right up my alley. I would love to win a ticket to this. Now that I live on the bus line, I can have a drink and take the bus home instead of driving. Who wants to drive in the city and try to find parking when Tri-Met will take me home after I have had a drink.

  58. Barbara July 20, 2011 at 10:02 am #

    This sounds remarkable. I would love to attend for so many reasons but the truth of the matter is I enjoy wine. period. please pick me.
