About Green Festival

At Green Festival®, a project of Green America and Global Exchange, we’re celebrating what’s working in our communities and around the world – for people, business and the environment.

Think of Green Festival® as a walk through a sustainable community. It begins with finding solutions to help make our lives healthier-socially, economically and environmentally. Individuals, business and community leaders come together to discuss critical issues that impact us at home and abroad. Organizations and businesses showcase programs and products that restore the planet and all that inhabit it. Neighbor-to-neighbor connections are formed and skills are shared to empower people to create positive change in the world.

Join us at the nation’s premier sustainability event, where you will see the best in green. Enjoy more than 125 renowned authors, leaders and educators; great how-to workshops; cutting-edge films; fun activities for kids; organic beer and wine; delicious vegetarian cuisine and diverse live music. Shop in our unique marketplace of more than 300 eco-friendly businesses-everything from all-natural body care products and organic cotton clothing to Fair Trade gifts and beautiful kitchen tiles made from renewable resources.

See the most recent developments in renewable energy and green technology; sample Fair Trade chocolate, tea, coffee and oils (yes, they really do taste better); and learn how to invest in your community, green your home and avoid products made without consideration of the earth or its people.

Recharge your batteries with all the hope, inspiration and practical ideas you’ll find at the one and only Green Festival.
