Be part of this one-stop shopping event for information and products about living in harmony with our earth. This is the largest indoor/outdoor environmental fair in the Capital Region.There will be exhibits and information on renewable energy and sustainable living in addition to good food and drink. One can meet motivated attendees, speak with like-minded exhibitors, lead workshops or listen to speakers on a variety of topics. Our goal is to continue to educate the public while showcasing products and services to achieve this goal. This event is free and open to the public with free parking. See below for a list

We had over 250 people attend our first ever Fair in 2016 and we had close to 400 attend last year with 53 exhibitors explaining everything from geothermal/solar/wind energy to carbon sequestration to zero waste.

The fee to have a table at the Fair is still only $200 for a business/for-profit organization and $35 for a not-for profit organization.

We will have several speakers talking about a variety of environmental issues. We will once again offer a Fair Program Booklet that will include climate information, a listing of exhibitors and paid advertisements. The exhibitor contact information will be listed in the back of the Fair Program Booklet once again (at no extra fee).If you are interested in being an exhibitor, please register here. Please share this event on all of your communication tools.. You can pay for the event with Paypal by clicking here or send a check to SNYFGP, 1409 County Route 5, Canaan, NY 12029.

We will be promoting this Renewable Energy and Sustainable Living Fair via our newsletters, press announcements, posters, social media, etc. Here are some links to past Fairs:  2017 Fair Facebook2016 Fair FacebookReport on 2018 Fair
