On Sunday, May 17th, seventeen Middlesex County libraries, in partnership with the Connecticut Library Consortium, will present Green Fest - a celebration of going green in our community. The festival, the highlight of the libraries' county-wide "Greening Our Valley" initiative, will take place from 1:00 to 4:00 pm at Middlesex Community College's Chapman Hall, 100 Training Hill Road in Middletown. All ages are invited and admission is free.
The festival will feature educational materials, giveaways and games sponsored by libraries and other organizations; circus-themed food; discussions on Connecticut outdoor living led by Rachael Sunny from the CT Department of Environmental Protection and gardening expert Patrice Barrett; and, at 3:00 p.m., a performance of ARTFARM’s Circus for a Fragile Planet. Bring your own water bottle for a chance to win an eco-surprise.
Enjoy a great afternoon of family-friendly activities while supporting libraries and our green future! The college is handicapped accessible and there is plenty of free parking. All ages are invited to this free festival, made possible by a grant from the Middlesex County Community Foundation.
