Alisa Gravitz

In Washington DC, the Green Festival is two days filled with the best in green, celebrating what is working in our communities - for people, business and the environment.

At the Green Home Pavilion, discover presentations by experts in everything from going solar to urban beekeeping. Visit our Green Festival Garden and learn about local food projects and how easy it can be to plant a backyard garden. In Community Action, learn how the Washington DC schools are doing it right - serving healthier foods and educating our children on how eating well is best for them and better for the planet. The Green Business Pavilion is a great place to get ideas to green your workplace.

Take advantage of all of it, plus world-class responsible shopping and the best in organic and vegan fare. Support hundreds of local green and fair trade businesses at DC's Green Festival!

Quotes:

"A mecca for “deep greens,” [Green Festival is] the kind of place where yogis hang upside down, drums beat and vegan food is de rigeur."

- Lynn Anne Miller, 4greenPs.com


"The Green Festival is an essential part of our outreach. It's a great way to convert the curious into customers."

-John Schaeffer, Real Good Solar

 

"Green Festivals are the perfect venue for Mary's Gone Crackers to connect with our community and expand our customer base."

- Mary Waldner, Mary's Gone Crackers
