Although there will be no physical EcoFair in 2021, the EcoSpirit is alive and well.
As we will not all convene in person this year, we have identified several ways in which we will support and sustain the spirit of EcoFair this spring, bringing it directly to you:
> Education and engagement on key sustainability topics through our multipart EcoTalks series
> Hands-on service and stewardship by a continued partnership with and support of the annual Spring Clean-up
> Action through a Community Sustainability Challenge
> Recognition and celebration of leadership through the presentation of the 2021 ATLAS (Andy Tyson Leadership Award in Sustainability)
Partners include AVANT, Creative Energies, EcoTour Adventures, Friends of Pathways, Hole Food Rescue, Integrated Solid Waste and Recycling, Jackson Hole Airport, Jackson Hole Rotary Club, Lower Valley Energy, RRR Business Leaders, Riverwind Foundation, Slow Food in the Tetons, Hole Food Rescue, Yellowstone-Teton Clean Cities, START, Teton Conservation District, Teton County, and the Town of Jackson.
Proudly supported by
The Annual Jackson EcoFair – always the 2nd Saturday in May
Hosted by Energy Conservation Works, this traditional spring event in the Tetons has drawn roughly 2,000 participants and fairgoers each spring.
EcoFair has celebrated environmental stewardship and featured sustainability-oriented booths, live music, local food, demonstrations, kids’ activities, recycling education, and more for nearly 20 years. As we navigate the spirit of the event through the years of the COVID-19 pandemic, things are in a constant state of change. It is our hope to bring the physical event back in 2022, but in the meantime we will host creative programming designed to cultivate the spirit of EcoFair through both good and challenging times. Feel free to navigate below to get an understanding of the physical event and what to expect when we return.
Huge thanks to our recurring EcoFair title sponsors: Teton County, Jackson Hole Travel & Tourism Board, Teton County Integrated Solid Waste & Recycling, High Country Linen Service, and Teton Conervation District!
In the Spirit of EcoFair, Please Take Alternative Transportation to the Event (and everywhere else you go)!
