Last year’s inaugural EcoFest was a smash.
Lured by great weather, good music and plenty of food — and the warm feeling of learning how to do right by Mother Earth — an unexpectedly large crowd gathered at Levitt Pavilion for an afternoon of environmentally correct fun.
The 2nd annual EcoFest is set for this Saturday, again at the Levitt. The sponsors — Staples’ Club Green and Westport’s Green Village Initiative — have gathered over 30 exhibitors — and added a few twists.
Once again there’s free (!) food — but this time Bobby Q’s will serve pork raised by local farms, and Skinny Pines Pizza‘s offerings will be all local and organic (with fully biodegradable tableware, cutlery and cups made from plants).
If you bring your own water bottle, the drinks are free.
The 12:30-2:30 time slot is geared specifically to youngsters and their families, with plenty of kids’ activities.
The music kicks off at around 2:30 — that’s when the high school and college crowds are expected.
The surprise hit last year was Staples student Glenn Friedman’s circus bus, which he’d converted to run on waste vegetable oil.
No word yet on what this Saturday’s EcoFest will unveil.
But there’s always something new under the sun.
