Don't miss the Mercer Green Fest, our local area green fair promoting green living for Mercer County families, on Saturday, March 17th from 11 - 4 at Rider University Student Recreation Center. We're working hard to insure that this year’s event will be bigger and better than ever. .
We invite all area residents to join us at the 12th annual green fair in the Mercer County area, the Mercer Green Fest. The festival will be at Rider University’s Student Recreation Center located on the main campus in Lawrence Township. It is free and open to the public and will run from 11 am until 4 pm. The event will feature live entertainment, local sustainable businesses, sustainable community groups, a farmer’s market, local fresh food at our lunch café, demonstrations, and speakers throughout the day. There will be fun for the whole family!
More than 70 eco-friendly businesses and organizations will be offering information and incentives to help you go green and save money. Visitors can learn about a wide variety of sustainability issues and exciting community projects such as bike trails, food waste recycling programs, energy efficiency, electric cars, health, exercise & wellness, and science fair projects from area schools.
There's plenty for the kids to do too with lots of entertainment for a fun Saturday afternoon.
A farmers market will feature local farms and local artisan food producers. A lunch celebrating locally sourced and seasonal ingredients will be available for purchase.
