This event features the popular New Old Time Chautauqua vaudeville troupe and many local bands and musicians. More than a hundred exhibitors will showcase green technology, green products, environmental education and local handmade crafts. Leading authorities will lead hands-on workshops and educational forums.
"The festival brings citizens together with civic leaders, environmental educators and green businesses in a fun-filled festival atmosphere," said Kitsap County Commissioner Steve Bauer. "We'll have lots of fun stuff for the kids, including clowns, magic shows, puppet shows, parades, jugglers, FIN a walk-in mobile salmon, and an all-ages trash art contest. Families come for the fun and leave equipped to help their communities move toward a more sustainable future."
"Sustainability, our theme, is at risk of becoming an overused cliché, but the reality is more urgent than ever," said Bauer. "We cant have a sustainable economy without a sustainable environment. And people really want to be good stewards of their environment. Theyre looking for ways to help. We see our role as connecting people with some our most exciting problem solvers in an atmosphere of fun and family entertainment."
