Gallery: The Green Festival Lands in New York City for Earth Day

Children can interact with nature at the NYC Green Festival this weekend.

The Green Festival hits the Big Apple for the first time this weekend, April 21-22 at the new LEED-certified North Wing of the Jacob Javits Center. The eco-conscious event is perfectly timed for Earth Day festivities and will feature talks from 125 authors, activists and green movement leaders including Amy Goodman from Democracy Now! and Russell Simmons. You can hitch a free ride to the fest with Revolution Rickshaws pedicabs and show your support for sustainability and social justice by attending the THREADS Eco-Fashion Show, a DIY workshop, or checkout more than 300 exhibitors at the Green Business and Urban Go Green Pavilions. You can also sip organic beer and wine, eat local food or shop the Green Marketplace.
