Roots & Wings is on the horizon

Tuesday, July 5, 2022 by Tai Moses

The 2022 Roots & Wings Festival – the annual citywide celebration of all things trees and pollinators – is winging its way toward Austin at high velocity. The actual event, a fusion of Arbor Day and Monarch Appreciation Day, will take place Oct. 22-Nov. 5. Area nonprofits and other organizations that would like to host a community event celebrating trees, pollinators or nature have until Aug. 5 to apply. When brainstorming your proposal, keep in mind that festival organizers have expressed the “hope that this year’s fifth annual Roots & Wings Festival allows every Austinite to connect more deeply to our city, our natural spaces and to each other.” Find out more about event criteria and how to apply here.
