SANTA ROSA, Calif. -  Hilton Sonoma Wine Country (HSWC) is proud to announce its inaugural sponsorship of Harmony Festival, the West Coast's premier outdoor music and progressive lifestyle event. With hundreds of performers, over 350 vendors and unique activities, Harmony Festival thrives by promoting the values of music, art, ecology, healthy living and spirituality as the keys to creating engaged societies and a vibrant planet.

"At Hilton Sonoma Wine Country, supporting dynamic cultural initiatives that encourage healthy lifestyles and build stronger communities is part of our ongoing corporate responsibility," says General Manager Lowell Johnson. "We are committed to being a respected and socially conscientious asset to our region." As part of that commitment, HSWC has implemented back of house green standards ranging from Energy Star washing machines, a towel and sheet re-use program in housekeeping to collecting cooking oil for fuel conversion and water upon-request-only in the food and beverage department. "We hope sponsoring and promoting a festival with a progressive and culturally conscious mission will inspire other corporate entities in the region to incorporate sustainable initiatives in their day-to-day operations."

Held June 11th-13th at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, the Harmony Festival features activities that include natural food cooking demonstrations and holistic healing remedies, a sacred meditation space with an interactive altar as well as yoga classes and workshops. With over 35,000 attendees each year, the Harmony Festival is one of the region's most successful events. The 2010 music line-up includes a special performance by multiple Grammy award-winner Lauryn Hill, New Orleans jam sextet Galactic, and West Coast DUB/Rock pioneers Rebelution, and The Expendables.
