Thank you to everyone that exhibited and attended our last EarthEXPO! Despite a damp start to the day, over 80 exhibitors gathered on Frank Ogawa Plaza to celebrate Earth Day and showcase their contributions to the sustainable environment. About 2,000 attendees came to explore the offerings of the green businesses, community groups, artists and environmental organizations exhibiting.
Attendees lined up at the LOCAL EATS food vendors to enjoy the delicious fresh, local lunch menus. There were also exhibitors on hand to answer questions about composting, growing a garden, buying organic and much more. Hundreds of EXPO goers explored the event using the “Close the Loop” walking tours. The walking tours suggested linkages between exhibitors and offered free giveaways to attendees who visited a series of booths on one of the designated loops. We’re already looking forward to another fun and festive event next year!
