New England’s largest environmental music festival returns to City Hall Plaza today through Sunday for the 9th annual Boston GreenFest! It will be clear skies and sunshine all weekend, so make time to learn about the green innovations happening in your neighborhood, around the city, and all across the region!
Featuring a wide array of food, film, art, vendors, exhibitors, and live performances from throughout New England, the Boston GreenFest offers something for everybody. This year features a Showcase of Innovation, from green-themed apps to make life easier to tips on growing a mini-farm in your kitchen.
GreenFest also provides a window into the many ways Boston has made itself greener and more environmentally responsible. The City sponsored a Green Roofs demonstration on the eighth and ninth floors of City Hall, and it was the first city in the nation to require all large-scale projects to meet the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED certification standards.
