Since 2009, Broccoli City has encouraged people to make conscious decisions when it comes to their health and environment. On April 19th, Broccoli City’s 2nd annual festival will take place in our nation’s capital Washington, D.C. We had the pleasure this week of interviewing Theresa Phan the Communication Specialist at Broccoli City.

Theresa: The second annual Broccoli City Festival is an environmentally conscious festival that engages multicultural communities through music. Attendees will have access to yoga sessions, aerobics, and a pop up marketplace featuring diverse vendors as well as entertainment acts and personalities such as Cam’ron, Jojo, Dizzy Wright, Just Blaze, Vashtie, Chuck Inglish, and more. During the inaugural 2013 edition, nearly 5,000 people took part in the festivities. This year, BC Fest is poised to give multicultural communities a fresh look at various environmental wellness programs and strategies within a fun setting.
