September 27 – Evanston Green Living Festival


Working Bikes will be collecting bicycles at the Evanston Green Living Festival on Saturday, September 27 from 9am to 3pm.

The Evanston Green Living Festival is an annual event that was started to encourage individuals to make meaningful changes to their everyday life that will reduce their personal carbon footprint. The festival promotes this green lifestyle by providing a venue where local green vendors, exhibitors, and speakers can present to an interested audience.

Kids have fun at the festival too!  Activities for children are available all day at the festival. Kids’ activities from last year included: meet the ecology center aquatic animals, explore the wonders of water through mini-experiments, decorate a mini-canoe to take home, Claire of the Lake dance, Elaine Wagner playing the hammer dulcimer, and the Eco-bike.

Delicious food and drinks are available for most of the festival hours. And we encourage attendees to take a free bicycle rickshaw ride through the beautiful Ladd Arboretum.

The festival is for residents of Evanston and the surrounding communities and we encourage people to come with family and friends to discover exciting new ideas on how to lead a greener life.
