51. The Annual Sustainable Living Fair

Sustainable Living Fair, Fort Collins, CO

The 11th Annual Sustainable Living Fair will be happening this weekend at Legacy Park on September 18 and 19. The event will offer interactive, family oriented events designed to educate people of all ages and backgrounds about: renewable energy, green building, natural health, social responsibility, and local economies. It’s a great way to spend a weekend and you’re sure to find something fun to do with the long list of available activities, entertainment, and education happening.

Visitors will be able to peruse over 250 exhibitor booths showcasing innovative products and interact with local vendors offering sustainable services in the community.

There will be informative, well-spoken, and motivating keynote speakers covering a range of topics including Doug Fine, NPR guy and author described as Jerry Seinfeld meets Edward Abbey.

Over 50 workshops will cover a range of topics too extensive to describe. Just a few examples include how to build your own wind turbine, a smoothie blending demo and tasting, yoga instruction, backyard chickens, sewing, solar panels, gardening, lifestyle, and much, much more.

Last year’s event was attended by over 12,000 and made possible by the work of 331 volunteers. The number of people attending continues to grow each year, and I’m sure this year will be no different.
