The Downtown Alliance is pleased to announce a new partnership with ReDirect Guide to present the 7th annual Live Green SLC! Festival: Saturday, May 8th at Library Square from 10 am to 6 pm.
This event—which is the most recognized environmental fair in the State of Utah—is educational, entertaining, and engaging. More than 100 vendors are expected to be at the festival, including a variety of businesses that share the vision of providing a healthy environment and a more sustainable economy.
“We’re really excited to join the Downtown Alliance this year in producing this fun and well-known sustainability event. The festival is free and will showcase the many local resources that make living green fun and easy, as well as present pragmatic ideas for us all to help protect the natural beauty of our home and vibrancy of our community,” says Mike Johnson, co- producer of the event and founder of ReDirect Guide.
