April 27, 2017

PHOENIX – Join Citizens for Solar for the 35th Annual Solar Potluck & Exhibition at Catalina State Park on Saturday, May 6, 2017. Experience the flavors of solar-cooked food and learn about solar by viewing solar appliances and exhibitions (ovens, fountains, coolers, lights, electrical systems) and solar arts. The event is co-sponsored by Catalina State Park.

The Solar Potluck & Exhibition is an educational, family-friendly event. Learn about solar cooking, solar PV, solar hot water, energy conservation and other “green” topics. Throughout the day, there will be speakers and musicians on stage with a PA system powered by solar energy. Wear comfortable shoes, a brimmed hat and sunscreen. The festival will be held come sun, rain or wind!

Solar cooks are welcome to bring their own solar oven(s) and join in on the cooking. The Solar Potluck and Exhibition opens to the public at 10 a.m., but we ask that our solar cooks have their ovens set up by 9:30 a.m. The Potluck dinner starts at around 5 p.m. Guests are invited to join in the potluck dinner. The cost is Catalina State Park’s Entrance Fee of $7 per vehicle (up to four adults). For more information, visit or call (520) 628-5798 or visit
