Visitors will also have a chance to: tour two tiny homes, pick up free bicycle gear, try an e-scooter, how to turn single-use plastics into reusable items and hear more about Sarasota in Motion, the city’s master plan. And, in recognition of Arbor Day and the City of Sarasota’s celebration of 33 years of being designated as a “Tree City USA” by the Arbor Day Foundation, some attendees will also be able to take home one of more than 70 free native plants and trees available at the festival, while supplies last.
