GreenFEST 2016 Seventh Annual Earth Day Celebration

GreenFEST 2016 Seventh Annual Earth Day Celebration

The GREEN Alliance is thrilled to bring you the Seventh Annual largest Earth Day Festival in Nevada, GREENFest 2016, along with our partners Republic Services and the Howard Hughes Corporation, developer of Summerlin®, Las Vegas’ most vibrant master-planned community, and thanks to our other generous Media Partners and Sponsors.

This year’s GREENFest festival will once again be held in Downtown Summerlin®. Nestled in the foothills of the west rim of Las Vegas, with Redrock Canyon as a backdrop, the venue provides a unique combination of LEED Green buildings in a downtown environment that speaks sustainability by design.

GREENFest brings together southern Nevada’s sustainable community to gather in one location to inform and educate the public.  In cooperation with our collaborative GREEN Allies, this event presents various ways to become more sustainable and showcase their meaningful work. GREENFest features environmental topics and exhibits, recycling collection, culture, diversity, innovation and resources to create a more enjoyable and healthy lifestyle.

We are thrilled to see this Festival grow year after year, now featuring in excess of 150 vendor booths, educational exhibits, festivities and other fun for the entire family.  GREENFest also provides kid-friendly activities, a treasure hunt, interactive exhibitors, live entertainment, food and festivial areas, a beer garden, pet adoption, and drawings for prizes throughout the day.
