The Town of Clinton is holding a Green Fair on May 14, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Frances Mark Park in Clinton. Host Jack Persely says the event is an opportunity for people to connect with businesses or ideas that can save them money and are also earth friendly.

“It’s a day to be with neighbors or near neighbors, learn cutting-edge ways to live fuller lives, and at the very least hear some good music,” he says. “There are very few Green Fairs in this county, so it’s a chance to get out of your comfort zone and help yourself and the Earth.”

Clinton’s Green Fair is being held with the help of the Pleasant Valley and Hyde Park Climate Smart Community (CSC) Committees. All three towns are working toward their CSC bronze certification, says Persely, who’s a member of the Clinton CSC Task Force. The Green Fair is his project for becoming a Climate Steward in the cooperative extension program.

Among the participating businesses and organizations are Dycor Heating and Air Conditioners; Suncommon; Energy Conservation Services; a chef from the Culinary Institute of America; a co-op extension representative; and a Pollinator Pathways representative. There will also be several electric vehicles for guests to explore. 

Live music will be provided by the Hudson Valley Bluegrass Association. 

Location: Frances J. Mark Memorial Park, 337 Clinton Hollow Rd., County Rte. 18, Salt Point, NY. For more info, call 845.266.5006 or email [email protected]
