Boston GreenFest Celebrates 10 Years




One of the largest multicultural environmental music festivals in the region, Boston GreenFest will take place for its 10th year from August 11 to 13, at Boston City Hall Plaza. This free event pulls out all the stops this year to showcase innovation, alternative health, healthy living and ways to bring greater balance to our planet. There will be films, exhibits, live music and a series of EcoForums at Faneuil Hall, including two about health that are supported by Natural Awakenings Boston.

“This is an opportunity for Natural Awakenings readers to move away from the print world into the real world and directly meet some of the people, companies and nonprofits who could make a difference in their lives,” says Karen Weber, executive director of Foundation for a Green Future, Inc.

Beyond exhibits and educational opportunities, great food, wine and beer will be available, and attendees will enjoy eco-vendors, culture and amazing entertainment, including evening concerts. Free fitness classes in Zumba, BollyX, yoga and mini-bootcamp will also be offered.

Cost: Free. Location: Boston City Hall Plaza, 1 City Hall Square, Boston. For more info, visit BostonGreenFest.org.
