Camden Green Fair!

The 20th Annual Camden Green Fair. 

CGF_logo.jpgThat's right - 20 years! And on June 6th, they will be hosting another Green Fair and BikeFest. Held in the heart of London in Regent’s Park, Camden Green Fair 2010 will be the Green Event of the year. We're proud to say that Green Families will host a table this year. A little personal PR notwithstanding, the objective of the event and the amount they have been able to achieve thus far is truly amazing. Not only does the event host 25,000 people, it is completely powered by renewable energy, none of its vendors are allowed to use anything but compostable packaging and it continues to aim for zero-waste. 

What we're most excited about are of course the kids' zone and the family activities - we can only guess what 'wellie wanging and dwilie flonking' are but they sound like good, clean, green fun. For the kiddies, there will be a 3 course vegetarian meal will be available free of charge first come first served for the  younger visitors to the event. Also new for the Green Kids area, the Performance Tent where  they can see Original Story Telling, Caboodle Performance and drama workshop and a Pan Arts  Presentation. Not to mention tons of free workshops including mobile making, willow weaving, windmill making, face painting, costume customising, growing workshop, sculpture gardening,  recycled music making, homeopathic workshops, forest schools activities (courtesy of Natural England), felting pictures, creating a flower fairy and a herbal walk around the park.  

So we certainly hope to see you all there; come by our booth on your way to the children's parade (and the FREE vegetarian kids meal) or the Ethical Fashion show or the BikeFest. It's completely free admission and runs from 12 - 7:30pm on the 6th. For more information, www.camdengreenfair.org.uk
