BURRILLVILLE – Friday, August 10 is the last day for vendors to register for the 12th annual Green Festival, set to take place on Saturday, Sept. 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The event, put on by Pascoag Utility District, Burrillville Parks and Recreation Department, BFMA and Jesse Smith Memorial Library, focuses on environmental issues, with vendors passing out information on topics including energy conservation, renewable energy, recycling, and sustainable living products.
But the festival also offers plenty for the whole family, with face painting, crafts, music and bucket truck rides for children. Adults can learn about various methods of conservation from green vendors, while food trucks cook up a variety of offerings and the Burrillville Farmers Market sells fresh, local products.
Bags packed with energy saving information, recycling tips and much more, will be given to the first 500 attendees.
This year the festival will also include an electric car show.
There is no fee to participate as a vendor, but those who register are asked to donate an item for the raffle table. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Burrillville Weekend Snack Pack Program; a program that provides at risk elementary school age children with food during the weekend. Learn more about the program here.
Donations are also be tax-deductible as Pascoag Utility District is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization.
