GREENFest Annual EARTH DAY Celebration

Saturday - April 12, 2014 11:00am - 6:00pm
UNLV Campus FREE Admission & Parking

Announcing, in the heart of UNLV's campus, the fifth annual GREENFest and 18th annual Festival of Communities together once again to honor Earth Day and celebrate the rich cultural diversity of UNLV. Brought to you by GREEN Alliance and Republic Services, GREENFest unites with UNLV's Festival of Communities to celebrate culture, sustainability and our community. 

  

GREENFest provides the opportunity for southern Nevada's sustainable community to gather in one location at one time. Our collaborative GREEN Allies present ways to become more sustainable as they showcase their meaningful work. This event features environmental topics and exhibits, recycling collection, culture, diversity, innovation and resources to create a more enjoyable and healthy lifestyle. At Festival of Communities, you will find students and local communities highlighting the rich cultural diversity of the Las Vegas Valley. 

 

We are thrilled to see this event grow from one year to the next with more than 250 booths combined. GREENFest and Festival of Communities will be featuring a variety of kid-friendly activities, live entertainment, food from around the world, a beer garden, interactive exhibitors, fun festivities, pet adoption, and drawings for prizes throughout the day. 

We are PROUD to say GREENFest is a Solar Powered and Zero Waste Festival!!!
