The Burien Solar Punk Festival: A One-Day Experience of Entertainment, Community, Environment and Technology
About this Event

If there is one simple fact that may just change your thoughts on renewable power, it's this one.

In a single hour, the amount of power from the sun that strikes the Earth is more than the entire world consumes in a year.

“Solar Punk” is the festival theme, which envisions a future where community and technology are integrated to create a self-sustaining system. In this event, attendees will learn about alternative self-sustaining ways to work and power their daily lives. It is an iconic one-day event that celebrates the best of Burien and empowers the community by bringing eco-friendly businesses together to showcase what they do and connect them to the community as potential employers. Business, Arts, and Culture are the three most powerful drivers of community participation and engagement in Burien and the pillars upon which the festival is based. The proceeds from The Burien Solar Punk Festival will be utilized to support: Key Tech Labs Green Jobs Expo, Mini Jobs Fair, Small Business Expo, funds for a new micro solar system, and stipends for the youth Green Pre-Apprenticeship Program participants.

Solar Punk Festival attendees young and old will get to experience various Green Technologies. Three examples are our an air to water generator, solar microgrid system and a FarmBot. The air to water generator extracts moisture from the air and converts it into water. The solar microgrid system generates energy from the sun. The FarmBot is an open-source CNC machine that can be programmed to water, seed and W**d automatically. Come on and join us because "The Future Is NOW and The Future is GREEN! "

The Burien Solar Punk Festival is an iconic one-day event that brings people together in one spot to present their enterprises and connect job seekers with green companies and professional prospects.

In Burien, there are limited opportunities for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) people and businesses to interact, network, and enjoy the culture together.

Join us for a full day of engagement and networking, followed by a nighttime opportunity to camp under the stars, see a culturally relevant movie, enjoy everything from local foods to an Augmented Reality Art wall, and your can even partake drinking harvested rainwater.


The Burien Solar Punk Festival is a Key Tech Labs event seeking to bring technology, art, culture and community together in one place to teach us what the future could look like.

We are recruiting volunteers to manage this futuristic event at the following link. There are four key elements to this event occurring simultaneously throughout the day.

  • Pop-up Farmers' Market: Community members can wander around and visit booths showcasing technology, local green enterprises, and cuisine.
  • Green Jobs Expo: the solar energy, green construction, and rainwater harvesting industries will be featured at the Green Jobs Expo. These business leaders will be available to chat with community members about green business and what it's like to be Black in these industries. These Green entrepreneurs will also disclose impending job opportunities for which community members can interview on-site.
  • A music festival: Experience an ultimate rockstar moment with Rockaraoke while a live rock band accompanies your singing. Be sure to check out our featured artist, David Ryan Harris, a renowned musician who has played with artist groups like Scary Pockets. This revolves around the stage, where guests will be entertained by spoken word performers, a band, and other media attractions.
  • Movie in the Garden: Wall-E is a Solar Punk masterpiece that promotes environmentalism and sustainability. The film follows the story of Wall-E, a robot cleaning up Earth's garbage. It emphasizes individual responsibility, solar energy, and the harmony between nature and technology—a visually stunning reminder to care for our planet.
