I’m excited to invite you to participate in The Second Annual Manayunk EcoArts Festival, a celebration of artistic, sustainable, and local green initiatives.
On Sat., Sept. 24 from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Sun., Sept. 25 from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., eco-minded artists, green businesses, and ecologically-concerned community groups will gather at this free event to share resources and education about green and healthy living. In its inaugural year the event drew 30,000 attendees for a weekend of shopping, dining, music, and learning about greener living.
Last year’s event drew press including the cover of the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Weekend Section, The Philadelphia Daily News, Daily Candy, CBS3, 6ABC, NBC10, KYW Radio, and more. The event was also attended by award recipients Mayor Michael Nutter, rap music pioneer Schoolly D, and Phillies pitcher Ryan Madson; and included an Eco Car Show, interactive displays, and exhibits by green-minded artisans.
This year’s event promised to be bigger, better, and greener with several exciting developments in the works! As always, there will be vegan and vegetarian dining options, on-site recycling and composting, and easy accessibility from public transit (with plenty of parking available as well).
A hub for sustainable, eco-conscious living, Manayunk has the feel of a small, riverside town, just outside the bustling city. The area features dozens of locally owned and operated businesses, restaurants dedicated to sustainability, new LEED certified residences, a heavily trafficked towpath, and a convenient waterfront location. Nestled along the banks of the Schuylkill River and the Manayunk Canal, and located just minutes west of Center City, Manayunk was named a National Historic District in 1983. The Main Street area is one of the region’s premiere shopping and dining destinations.
