Cape Ann Sustainability Fair

Come to the Cape Ann Sustainability Fair in Gloucester to learn how to "Get Your Green On"

TownGreen 2025, a program of the Gloucester Meeting House Foundation, presents its second Cape Ann Sustainability Fair.  This year's theme is "Get Your Green On" for the families and residents of Cape Ann.  Learn how to lower your own carbon foot print as you listen to great music, eat tasty local food, and learn from some of the greatest minds on climate change at our speaker's series.

The purpose of the fair is to kick off an effort to get families and residents to work together to lower their personal, residential carbon footprint. We are working in conjunction with the City’s efforts to do the same.  A focus of the fair will be:

  • Weatherization programs – signing people up for audits and supporting them with follow through
  • Electric vehicles, dispelling myths and fears about owning one
  • Other efforts people can make to create a more sustainable lifestyle

Specifically there will be five stations which will emphasize different aspects of working toward lowering one’s carbon footprint. Stations include, home energy efficiency, electric vehicles, renewable energy, reduce/reuse, and carbon sequestration. Each section will include an interactive learning experience.

The Cape Ann Farmer’s Market will be on site from 10 AM to 2 PM. Bring your broken bicycles to be repaired by volunteers from the Cape Ann Timebank and your unwanted bikes to be donated for refurbishing by Bikes not Bombs. Enjoy live music, speakers addressing clean energy technology, carbon neutrality, locally relevant impacts of climate change, and personal carbon footprint reduction and have enlightening conversations with our expert youth ambassadors about climate change concerns on Cape Ann. You can even test drive an Electric Vehicle! Admission is free.
