Green Homes Festival

Help your family live green! Join in for a hands-on, day-long festival of learning, playing, and engaging with people of all ages and backgrounds with an interest in sustainable, healthy lifestyles.
For the first time, the event will be held in the William T. Kemper Center for Home Gardening, Cohen Amphitheater, and its surrounding gardens and grounds.
Explore the links between sustainability, energy efficiency, conservation at home and a healthy environment. Talk with over 70 green product and service exhibitors, learning more about home improvement and healthy homes in the beautiful environment of the Kemper Center, itself a beacon of green living.
The festival features and highlights local foods and spirits, live music and sustainable and handmade shopping at the Green Marketplace. Presentations and demonstrations throughout the day share the many ways that plants, air, water, soil and energy sustain our homes, our health and our living Earth.
Children and families can enjoy solar car building and races, storytelling, puppet shows, making art from recycled materials and additional hands-on activities in a “Make It and Take It” do-it-yourself area.
