Check out the Green Festival Program for all the great happenings and floor plan for this weekend. If this is your first time attending a large festival or convention, check out the tips below to make sure you get the very best out of your experience.

BRING REUSABLE SHOPPING BAGS
We are trying to save the environment here! Many vendors may be selling reusable grocery totes for purchase. Many may also offer paper bags, with or without a handle. You will be happy to have your own hands-free, shoulder tote while browsing the event as there is a lot to see, do and interact with.

BRING SOME PHYSICAL SPENDING MONEY
In the days of technology and smart phones, many vendors will be accepting credit, debit, and in some cases, Paypal! Just in case, it is always a good idea to have some spending money for the vendors who are kickin' it old school.

WEAR COMFORTABLE FOOTWEAR
The carpeted areas only do so much to ease your tootsies. With so much to see at festival and convention types, you will be on your feet walking and standing quite a lot. Make sure that you are wearing your most comfortable footwear with socks. Also, don't forget to bring some water in a refillable bottle. Saving the world tends to work up a thirst!

LEAVE NO TRACE
At the Green Festival, there is no such thing as a trash can. Instead, there are Resource Recovery Stations. Each station is a fully loaded recycling center complete with collection bins for all types of recyclable items, including compostable foods. A trained attendant will be available at every station to assist you in discarding your garbage properly. That being said, there is no reason to abandon open wrappers or random debris anywhere on the event grounds.
