Mark your calendars! The 11th Annual North Grenville Sustainability Fair and Market will take place on Sunday April 22 from 10am to 3pm. It will be held at the North Grenville Community Centre. The grip of winter is loosening, so shake off the winter blahs and come meet your friends and family at this engaging community event.
Rooted in a celebration of Earth Day, the Sustainability Fair brings together locally-owned businesses, entrepreneurs, market vendors, artists, conservation and community groups from North Grenville and the surrounding area; all of whom are important threads in the cultural, environmental and economic fabric of a thriving sustainable community. Get to know the people who are part of the foundation of our local economy; chat with the booth holders and find out about their products and services. Peruse the market stalls for locally-produced art, crafts and edible goodies. Find out about the community organizations that make North Grenville a great place to live and work. Bring your family to enjoy engaging, hands-on activities in the kid’s area.
The electric vehicle show will also return. From more modest beginnings, this has grown to become the biggest electric vehicle show in the region. Anything bigger is in Montreal or Toronto. We thank the people of North Grenville for helping make this impact. This year, we anticipate around 30 cars with their owners, dealerships onsite offering test drives, and presentations during the day. Come see models from Tesla, the Chevrolet Bolt, Hyundai Ioniq, Pacifica minivan plug-in hybrid, Honda Clarity. Talk with owners about their experience, winter driving, and reliability – then take one for a drive! Or more than one – compare different models and manufacturers in this one place instead of driving to multiple dealerships across Ottawa.
Local music and food will be featured. In addition, presentations throughout the day will offer a chance to learn and experience new ideas or hear from local experts on matters related to sustainability and the community.
