The 2nd annual Montgomery County GreenFest will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 30 at the Takoma Park Community Center. GreenFest is looking for exhibitors to provide food or display information about their company or organization. For-profit and nonprofit environmentally-focused organizations and vendors are encouraged to participate. Space is limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration is expected to open the second week in February.
GreenFest is a celebration of the people and environment of Montgomery County and the role we all play in making it a healthier, sustainable community. It was launched last year as a public-private partnership of 13 governmental agencies and nonprofits to provide a platform for combining education, networking and entertainment -- all focused on the environment. It is expected to be the largest countywide environmental festival and attract well over 1,000 attendees.
This year’s event will feature family-oriented activities, inspirational speakers, music, films, an electric vehicle show, Do-It-Yourself workshops, food and a documentary screening presented in partnership with the Environmental Film Festival. In addition to a major focus on water-related issues, the event will feature concurrent presentations on energy efficiency and renewable energy, recycling and waste reduction, landscaping, sustainable transportation, and more.
