"We are in great need of helping hands leading up to and on the day of the fair." - Eve Marcum-Atkinson.  

Coordinators Eve Marcum-Atkinson and Denise Poole encourage everyone to come learn, listen to live local music, and have fun.

“We have many participating organizations and groups confirmed, offering presentations, demonstrations, workshops, and exhibits on sustainable issues. There will also be live music, artisans, and family friendly
activities.” – Denise Poole. 

“And we are very excited to have partnered with Tour DePATH, which will be a major draw, as will be the amazing musicians who will be performing all day and into the evening. Closing our event will be even more
live music from 6-11PM. You can’t help but have fun at Huntington’s first Sustainability Fair.” – Eve Marcum-Atkinson.

It was a big success! So much fun. Our local musicians really packed the place on a cold evening, and then there was that unanticipated parade down 4th avenue that kind of made parking a pain. Big hugs to all who managed to navigate the chaos and help support all things local, musical, and green.
