The 23rd annual EcoFest is taking place on
Sunday, August 28 Sunday, September 18 aboard the USS Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space Museum. EcoFest is a free environmental festival produced by the West Side Cultural Center where people can get information about green initiatives and companies, find sustainable products, learn about eco-friendly services, and be entertained by people who care about the environment. EcoFest‘s website features some of the highlights of the event:
A major focus of EcoFest is conservation of our natural resources and innovative alternative-energy technologies. This year’s EcoFest will again feature the SEOTO (Sources of Energy Other Than Oil) Alternative Fuels Display which demonstrates a wide variety of alternative-energy vehicles – ranging from prototypes of solar cars to electric, natural-gas, hybrid, fuel cell and ethanol vehicles already in use by private businesses and many New York City and New York State Agencies. The vehicles stay on display with exciting demonstrations and activities scheduled throughout the day.
In addition to the SEOTO Display, EcoFest regular features include the Eco Fashion Show on the World Solar Stage and the EcoFest Environmental Education Conference with renowned experts. The Eco Fashion Show presents collections made of 100% organic and recycled material and the Conference offers free seminars where key environmental issues are discussed.
