After a two-year campaign, the group behind Santa Rosa Fair Trade recently announced that the national grassroots movement, Fair Trade Campaigns, has named the city one of its Fair Trade Towns. This means that Santa Rosa is a leader in fair trade advocacy, education and action, working under the principles of environmental sustainability, ethical production methods, fair wages and safe working conditions. This weekend, an award announcement, live music, salsa dancing, a fair trade fashion show and many local businesses will be on hand for the Santa Rosa Fair Trade Town Celebration on Saturday, Oct. 17, Old Courthouse Square, Mendocino Avenue between Third and Fourth streets, Santa Rosa. 1pm. Free.
