The City of York Goes Green

Apr 02, 2012 06:30PM

Celebrate buying local, buying fresh and being green at the Go Green in the City festival in Downtown York from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., April 21. Now in its fourth year, Go Green in the City is expected to welcome nearly 1,000 people to downtown York for the fun, educational, family-friendly festival, celebrating green living and promoting local sustainability.

Artisans, green-conscious businesses, nonprofits and food and market vendors will set up along North Beaver Street, rain or shine, and participating shops and restaurants throughout downtown York will join in on the celebration by offering green-themed events and promotions during the festival.

Participants will enjoy family-friendly entertainment, great live music, tasty local foods, arts and crafts and plenty of street vendors with information to help achieve a greener lifestyle.

During the festival, individuals may take the new Green Buildings of York Walking Tour from 2 to 4 p.m. for $12 for a unique opportunity to enter a sampling of York’s greenest residential, educational and commercial buildings and learn about the unique features that contribute to LEED eligibility and certification from an expert in the field. Tour stops include Fulton Bank, Logos Academy, Murphy & Dittenhafer, York County Community Foundation, Wagman Construction Offices and CODO 28.

Samantha Zunic, a student at Central York High School, won the Go Green in the City artwork contest by creating the artwork featured in promotional and marketing materials for the event. Go Green in the City is made possible with support from Downtown Inc, The Shops on North Beaver Street and media sponsor Natural Awakenings magazine.
