The Associated Students remains committed to promoting sustainable practices by setting an example for the entire campus to emulate and provide the SDSU community with events and programs that serve our mission in becoming a more "green" campus.
As part of this mission, GreenFest was created to bring awareness to the entire SDSU student body surrounding San Diego community to celebrate sustainability and SDSU Pride.
Spring 2009 marked the inaugural "GreenFest" at SDSU with a three-day festival incorporating educational and social programs, ending in a major concert event and carnival.
In 2010, GreenFest was extended to include programs and events throughout an entire week. The week’s events included a Bike Brunch, Herb Garden Expo, Keynote Speaker Jerome Ringo, Tie-Dye Extravaganza, Enviro-Fashion Show, "Save the Ales" Beer Garden, student team competitions and educational components.
In partnership with the SDSU Greek Life Activities Board and the San Diego Padres, GreenFest hosted "SDSU Night at the Ballpark" in which 2,200 students came out to watch the Padres beat the Giants at Petco Park. Over $7,000 was raised through ticket sales for the Doheny Eye Institute in an effort to help one of our very own SDSU students suffering from sudden blindness due to a rare disease, LHON.
More notably was the major success of the 2010 evening festival and concert with over 6,000 students in attendance. The concert featuring LMFAO sold out in a record 7 days, making history at SDSU as one of the most successful, anticipated, and memorable events the campus had seen in years.
In 2011, GreenFest added more programs including a diversity element called Sustain Your Roots: World Map to Sustainability, and a Culinary Showcase featuring Top Chef finalist Brian Malarkey.
The concert featuring Lupe Fiasco and Steve Aoki was moved to Viejas Arena to accommodate more students and sold out in 6 days to almost 8,000 students.
With GreenFest gaining momentum, 2012 incorporated a carnival and multiple stages to end the week of events. The Festival featured T-Pain, Max Vangeli, EC Twins, and various SDSU student performers and cultural performances. The week of events focused on a "Know Your Food Campaign" along with creative events such as Compost Art Show and the ultimate favorite student event – the GreenFest Fashion and Music Awards.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis left their legacy along with Dev in March 2013 to a sold out crowd at the Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre.
The Boat Challenge at the SDSU Aquaplex and Keynote Speaker Leilani Munter proved to be a huge hit!
In 2014, the "diversity" pillar was added to GreenFest's mission to further encompass and celebrate the students of SDSU. Spoken word artist, Rudy Francisco, inspired and empowered students at a new event called Sustain Your Roots.
