11th annual Boonsboro Green Fest
The 11th annual Boonsboro GreenFest is coming Saturday, May 18, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Shafer Park. An opening ceremony will begin at 9:45 a.m. at the bandstand.
Organizers expect the park to be filled to capacity with 200 vendors again this year.
The festival will also feature live music all day long, a recycling drop-off center, kids zone, food pavilion and food trucks, and a local wine and beer garden. Proceeds from the garden go directly to the Friends of Shafer Park. Proceeds from the Clothing and Sports Equipment Swap benefit Micah's Backpack and Children in Need.
Vendors are chosen based on adherence to the Green Fest mission "to promote conservation, recycling and sustainable living within our community."
Based on the themes or products of the vendors, they will be listed on the website and in the program brochure in various categories, such as Eco-Home, Eco-Lifestyle, Sustainable Agriculture & Gardening, Conservation & Recycling, Eco-Kids, Clean Energy Options, Health & Wellness, Eco-Transportation, Go Local, and Food & Refreshments.
