Popular Eco-friendly Arlington Festival Offers FREE Family Fun
The seventh annual Ecofest Arlington will take over the streets of Downtown Arlington on Saturday, September 19, from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. This free, family-oriented event will take place at Founders Plaza, 100 W. Abram Street.
Ecofest Arlington helps build a sense of community, stimulates environmental awareness and promotes stewardship across North Texas.
"Last year, Arlington set a new record for Ecofest attendees," Urban Forestry Land Manager Heather Dowell said. "This event is one of a kind and its popularity reflects that. Ecofest gets bigger and better every year and we know it makes a difference in our community."
The Arlington Parks and Recreation Department has partnered with Republic Services, and other local sponsors, to provide a wide range of activities starting at 10am. More than forty vendors will spotlight their green products and services. Classes and demonstrations on environmental awareness will take place throughout the day. Children's activities will be part of the event as well with games, crafts and educational presentations. Food and refreshments will also be available for purchase during the event.
