CHESAPEAKE GREEN LIVING FESTIVAL TO HIGHLIGHT LOCAL SUSTAINABILITY
Regional consumer show about HOME, EARTH, YOU, THE BAY at Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds, June 19 & 20
Showing how to live a Green, sustainable, and environmentally friendly life is the mission of the Chesapeake Green Living Festival, the first regional festival of its kind in this area. Eco-minded consumers in the Chesapeake region – including Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia – will explore what they can do to shift lifestyles toward sustainability, better health, and energy efficiency.
The festival will be held on Saturday and Sunday, June 19 & 20, at the Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds, just north of Annapolis, in Crownsville, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Tickets will cost $8 for adults, $5 for seniors and kids up to age 12-18. Children under 12 accompanied by an adult and active duty military with an ID will be admitted free. And, to celebrate Father’s Day, all dads will be admitted free when accompanied by their children on Sunday.
Through exhibits, how-to demonstrations, and presentations by featured speakers, The Chesapeake Green Living Festival will provide useful information in a fun, family oriented way that will help residents of the Chesapeake region make informed decisions and take action to lead more healthy lives with less impact on our local environment. This is the first large-scale, regional show that will focus on local environmental issues, local businesses and the work of local non-profit organizations.

There will be plenty of activities for kids, the next generation of environmentalists. Food and drink will be available, including organic beer and wine. The Chesapeake Green Living Festival is about creating a marketplace where green commerce can increase the bottom line while healing the planet, and educated consumers can affordably incorporate Going Green into their daily lives. It’s about home, Earth, you, and The Bay.
The Festival is produced by City Dock Productions and Annapolis Green and sponsored by the RainScaping campaign, Ciminelli’s Landscape Services, and Kenergy Solar.
