Please visit the Sustainable Living Fair on Saturday, October 18th! There are some great workshops and speakers that will help you to learn ways to keep your sustainable practices going all year long. Sustainable building tours, workshops, booths and much more!
Thanks to all the folks who came out to the 2014 Columbia Area Earth Day Festival! A lot of volunteers are needed to put something like this together and we really appreciate those of you who helped out! There was a lot of learning happening on ECO Avenue and many thanks go out to the organizations and businesses that help to make this festival all about sustainability! Now to start planning for next year!
Impending thunderstorms and possibility of severe weather tomorrow have led us to opt for the rain date of May 4th. We hope for better weather next weekend! Booth registration is re-opened for anyone who did not get in previously and still wants to be included. We will be looking for help to replace volunteers that were scheduled for this weekend who can not make our next date. Please call 573-875-0539 if you can help! Thank you!
Well, the time is upon us and we are excited to say that this looks to be one of the best Earth Day Festivals to date! Over 200 booths, 7 hours of great music and lots of good food will help to make this a great place to have a great time while we learn to live more sustainably. This is a free event and we hope to have lots of people join us to celebrate Mother Earth! Bring your friends, bring your family because there are lots of things to do for folks of all ages. We do ask you to leave your dog at home, however. We also ask for your support, if you are so inclined, and we will have donation boxes at the entrances to the fair. Funds raised will go toward sustainability programming throughout the year as well as future Earth Day Festivals. Thanks for your support!
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
Our weather team will be watching carefully on Saturday to determine if the weather will hold out for us on Sunday. If we have to postpone the festival until the rain date of May 4, then we will post that information here on the website as well as broadcast it on KOPN, 89.5. Ideally, the festival will happen this weekend, but the current forecast for Sunday includes thunderstorms. Our vendors and entertainers are all on schedules that make having the festival this weekend a top priority, so a small amount of rain will not dampen our spirits! Stay tuned here and on KOPN for the latest updates.
