Local organizations and non-profits will be educating and inspiring us about the many advantages of local food and maintaining a and fit lifestyle. Food is central to daily life and family culture, and is a source of empowerment, community connection and cultural celebration. With goals to reduce waste at the Festival, our non-profit partners will have engaging exhibits that minimize paper handouts and impacts on our environment.

The Family Fun Zone is filled with exciting interactive games and activities for the whole family! From getting physical to being in touch with growing and farming, there is something for everyone! Family Fun Zone is presented by: The Trustees and KAS Consulting.

The Trustees will once again bring the experience of the farm to us on The Greenway! And, for the whimsical in you, Painting as Art & Ritual will transform your face into a piece of art and fancy! Angela will make magic again with her brush bringing to your face anything from butterflies and flowers to your favorite super heroes or action figure!
