Sustainable North Grenville is working to bring the ever popular and eco-friendly Sustainability Fair to Kemptville on Sunday, April 16, 2023. This will be the 14th Sustainability Fair since the fair began in 2008.
The event is to be held again at the North Grenville Municipal Centre Community Rooms and Arena. Presentations and workshops will take place in the theatre throughout the event.
For those new to our community, the Sustainability Fair is an opportunity to connect with small businesses local to our area, learn and share on various topics under the sustainability umbrella, see one of the largest electric vehicle displays in Eastern Ontario and test drive some of the latest models. While some attendees are keen environmentalists, many are simply families coming out for a free, family-friendly event to see what they can learn. There’s something for everyone!
Local food, local music, tables with local vendors and community groups are expected. The usual space showcasing electric vehicles will be there. Due to the success and excitement last year, additional space will be allocated in the arena for energy efficient home renovation information – specifically addressing the climate change issue.
Watch for more information in the coming weeks. Follow our Facebook page to hear the latest on presentations, workshops, test drive vehicle availability, and reach out to us there if you’d like to volunteer with us! https://www.facebook.com/sustainablenorthgrenville
