4th Annual Green Earth Festival This Saturday

Phoenixville is celebrating community and sustainability at the 4th Annual Green Earth Festival on the Schuylkill River Trail on September 21 from 9AM - 2PM. See Google map for location.

The festival features exhibitors, food, music, and children's entertainment.

Visit the Festival Exhibitors that specialize in eco-friendly products, renewable energy, earth-friendly services, environmental / trails / recycling advocacy, and organizations that are making a difference by protecting the environment and building a sustainable and maintainable local economy. The festival will feature local businesses and service groups that are working to make our region a more sustainable community.

Check out the Green Vehicles exhibit, including electric, hybrid and biodiesel autos. Come down and see the newest green cars from Ford, General Motors and the Smart Car.

Entertainment and Fun for all ages!
Entertainment will include music and community art projects that everyone can join in. Kids can design their own banners, where imagination is the limit! People of all ages can participate in the Empty Bowls Project and craft unique bowls out of clay to help the hungry in our community. But the clay doesn't stop there! Local service group and community garden project overseers, Seventh Wonder, will teach us all how to make seed bombs. Build 'em, throw 'em, and watch 'em grow!

Free Bike Rentals will be available on the trail through Phoenix Cycles as part of the Bike Schuylkill - Phoenixville program. The Schuylkill River Heritage Corridor and the Green Team sponsor this program so that people can explore the town and local trails on two wheels. Take a spin across the river to Mont Clare and the Lock 60 and back for free!
