What is Green Fa​​ir?

Stroll local exhibits and learn innovative ways to live sustainably and take climate action. Over forty nonprofit, governmental, and other exhibitors will be on hand to answer your questions. Find resources and communities for sustainable action, including: the circular economy, solar technologies, green transportation, plant-based foods, climate resiliency, environmental education, clean water protections, and energy waste reduction.​

Enjoy a wide variety of interactive demonstrations! Meet the Birds of Prey from Leslie Science & Nature Center, bring a t-shirt to get screen-printed and take home, watch a demonstration of the Water Utilities stormdrain scope, taste-test an "impossible meat ball,” test ride a cargo bike and get a free pumpkin (while supplies last), test your recycling knowledge, and much, much more….
