Downtown Silver Spring is going green on Saturday, October 5th! For the second year, Silver Spring is hosting a GreenFest with environmentally themed vendors, activities, games and educational opportunities. The GreenFest is free to attend and open to everyone.
Building upon the success of last year, this year’s Silver Spring GreenFest will feature a full day of educational lectures and panel discussions by national and local environmental leaders. The educational sessions will take place inside the Civic Building.
Each speaker is followed by a Local Solutions Panel of experts to discuss how Montgomery County citizens can implement the lessons they learned at home. A few of the panelists include speakers from the Montgomery County Food Council, the National Environmental Education Foundation and the Nature Conservancy (to name a few!).
Attend the sessions that most appeal to you, and throughout the day participate in the games and activities on Veterans Plaza or shop the green vendors at the Fenton Street Market.
The Silver Spring GreenFest is a fun-filled day for the whole family. Come join us as we celebrate the natural world and environment of Montgomery County, Maryland and the United States!
