San Jose Zero1 Green Prix

"The Green Prix is a parade and festival taking place during the 01SJ Biennial
that celebrates inventive ideas related to sustainable locomotion. It
is an opportunity for artists and the public alike to produce,
participate in, and experience innovative projects related to eco-themed
transportation.

Green Prix Parade

ZER01 invites public participation in the Green Prix Parade. The
Green Prix parade will be an eclectic, artistic eco-moition procession
beginning in the South Hall
(San Jose Convention Center) parking lot and proceeding down South 1st
Street through the SoFA district. A parade of human-powered, electric,
solar and many other sustainable locomotive projects will cascade down
the street displaying an array of artistic mobility.

Green Prix Festival

Following the Parade, there will be an all day festival on South 1st
Street where parade entries will be on display and available for
visitors to interact with and possibly even test out. The Festival will
be filled with “green” creations, parade projects, family oriented
do-it-yourself workshops, demonstrations, local galleries and music
performances."
