The 2020 EcoFair will be online this year! Our organizing team is abuzz with excitement as we plan the webinars, films, workshops, and exhibitor showcase that will all happen online over 4 weeks. And – new this year – EcoFair EcoTours will be coming to neighbourhoods near you.
For the past eleven years, EcoFair at the Barns has annually attracted up to 1,700 attendees, featured 40 exhibitors, and included interactive workshops and kids’ activities, as well as a free environmental film screening. We’re taking a different direction this year and offering this amazing content online – and in bike rides or walks across the City!
Many changes are afoot for this year’s EcoFair. One is our 2020 name, which will be “EcoFair Toronto” (we’ll be online & not at the Barns). Another is that instead of being a one day event, the EcoFair will be twelve exciting 1.5 h events happening over 4 weeks between Oct 15 and Nov 8. Each week has a theme: Carbon Countdown (week 1), Waste Not (week 2), Active & Healthy (week 3), and the Eco-economy (week 4). Events will culminate in the Nov 8 finale, featuring EcoFair eco-groups & eco-business exhibitors.
As always, the EcoFair is being organized 100% by volunteers. It will be FREE, family friendly, and fun. We’ll celebrate the wonderful people, environmental groups, and eco-businesses that are helping create a greener and healthier planet for all. Everyone can share and learn tips on ways to live more sustainably, and be inspired to make a difference as we start a green new decade. We CAN do this together!
