Renewable EnergyFest Taking Shape
The eighth annual Pennsylvania Renewable Energy & Sustainable Living Festival, sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Renewable Energy Association (MAREA), will be held Sept. 21 to Sept. 23, at the Kempton Community Center, in Kempton. The event will be focused on renewable energy, natural building construction, sustainable agriculture, alternative transportation options, land-use planning, forestry and healthy living practices in general. Festival committee members are working hard to make this year’s event the most fun and educational one yet by featuring a host of dynamic speakers, national exhibitors, workshops, hands-on demonstrations, vendors, an eco-friendly fashion show, alternative transportation, live music and entertainment, children’s activities, food and more.
MAREA will have a Do It Yourself (DIY) corner, with examples of what they’ve done to help conserve both money and resources, and guests are encouraged to bring their own examples along. The association is also seeking local artists with sculptural artwork that reflects energy issues and solutions. The 3D sculptures will be displayed on the festival grounds.
Kempton Community Center is located at 83 Community Dr., Kempton. For more information, visit PaEnergyFest.com.
