Enjoy 2-For-1 Admission at 10th Annual Chicago Green Festival
The largest sustainability event in the nation celebrates 10 years at Chicago’s McCormick Place on May 14 and 15. This one-of-a-kind weekend experience offers opportunities to meet authors, actors and community leaders; shop from more than 300 eco-friendly exhibitors; participate in educational workshops; enjoy live music and local vegetarian cuisine; and sample organic chocolates, wine and beer.
Ten stages and pavilions will host more than 125 inspirational and educational speakers and teachers, including Amy Goodman, The Fabulous Beekman Boys, Jeffrey Smith, John Perkins, Colin Beavan (No-Impact Man), Dr. Devra Davis, Hunter Lovins, Bianca Alexander and Dr. Sharif Abdullah. The Green Marketplace showcases more than 300 green and socially responsible businesses and organizations. Attendees can browse through non-toxic home products, organic clothing, fair-trade treats, décor and more.
Mention Natural Awakenings at the box office and receive 2-for-1 adult admission with a copy of the May magazine. Green Festival also gives back GF Bucks to individuals who purchase tickets online or at the door. GF Bucks are the local Green Festival currency and can be used the same-as-cash to shop in the Green Marketplace. Event volunteers also receive complimentary admission.
A joint project of Green America and Global Exchange, Green Festival inspires and promotes the connection between change and sustainable progress for people, communities and businesses.
“Whether you go to shop, learn, try new organic foods or experience art and music, Green Festival has it all, with the goal to motivate every person to think, participate and make more planet-friendly, sustainable choices in their everyday lives,” says Denise Hamler, Green America and Green Festival Founder.
