Rock the Green lines up SistaStrings, Klassik for 2023 Earth Day event

Do you like the Earth? How about music? If you didn’t answer yes to at least one of those questions, some life reexamination may be in order. If you did, Rock the Green’s 12th annual Earth Day celebration is very much for you.

The environmental organization with a musical flavor announced its plans for the 2023 installment being held riverside at the Harley-Davidson Museum from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 22. Milwaukee’s favorite Nashville residents SistaStrings and multitalented, multi-instrumentalist Klassik will provide the day’s live music, performing on a pedal-powered stage.

The trio already seem to be warming up for the zero-waste event, posting an NPR Tiny Desk Contest submission a couple weeks ago on Klassik’s YouTube channel.

In addition to the music, Rock the Green has a few new things ready to roll out for this year’s party. At the Rock the Outdoors area powered by Arch Solar, attendees will be able to demo H-D’s electric-powered balance bike (kids 3-7 only), connect with Wisconsin Climbers Association, take a quick class on “Savvy Cycling” courtesy of Bublr Bikes or how to raise backyard chickens with Royal Roost, participate in a yoga session and more.

Motor Bar & Restaurant will handle food and drink, and plenty of eco-friendly community groups will be on hand as well so you can learn how to be a little kinder to this planet of ours.

The event is free (although the food and drink aren’t), and if you’d like to do something nice in return, start the day by joining the Milwaukee Riverkeeper Spring Cleanup from 9 a.m. to noon. You can register here and learn more about the Earth Day celebration on Rock the Green’s website.
