University Hosts Urban Earth, Art and Music Festival

The 10th annual Wulapalooza, Willamette University's free music, art and Earth festival, will be held Saturday, April 26, on Brown Field.

Associated Students of Willamette University present the festival, which begins at noon with the main music stage opening at 5 p.m. This year's featured performers are Mobius Band from New York, and Portland bands The Blow, Blitzen Trapper and Panther. Other stages will feature performances from local and student-organized bands, a student art show and other activities.

Each year Wulapalooza includes a fundraiser for a local charitable foundation. This year the event will sponsor the Marion-Polk Food Share. The event is free, but canned food or monetary donations for the food share are welcome.

This year Wulapalooza celebrates its 10th anniversary. In the past decade, the event has evolved from a small festival providing a creative outlet for students on campus into a community event that brings in nationally recognized talent.

The festival seeks to provide a venue for community members to visit Willamette's campus, familiarize themselves with student organizations and be the university's guests for a day of music, art and entertainment.
