As America’s largest and longest-running sustainability and green living event, the Green Festival offers three days of exploration into the products and services that are shaping how we live healthier more sustainable lives. The festival’s mission is to inspire and empower consumers, communities and businesses to work, play and live green, which comes through inside the vibrant marketplace which has something for everyone.  At each destination across the country, the expo highlights an array of local and national trusted companies, innovative brands, pioneering thinkers and conscious customers who are seeking unique and powerful platforms for connecting to the wide array of ways sustainability integrates into our lives. From food, fashion, and health, to hands-on demos, educational activities and inspirational speakers, the Green Festival strives to represent the sustainable community with the best and latest in the marketplace.
