There will be an info fair, followed by a folk concert, and award ceremonies for various student Earth Day Ottawa contests at Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Drive.  Local peace and environment groups will have booths up from 6pm and the show will begin at 7pm.  The first performers, Pippa and John, will be enjoyed by younger members of the audience.  While the second set, Kate and Hollis, play bluegrass and folk.
