Edmonton carnival to showcase area sustainability

June 1, 2017 by  

This summer, Edmonton will be playing host to its first ever sustainable carnival, and all members of the public are welcome to find out how renewable energy sources can be put to use in their own local neighborhood.

The fair, which has been dubbed ‘Sustainival’, will feature all of the activities that many associate with this type of event. There will be rides for young and old alike, along with freshly cooked mini-donuts. Visitors will be able to vie for an assortment of prizes during the Green Beast Eco-Challenge, which will be a scavenger hunt with an interactive and educational twist.

The public will be able to browse through the items on offer in the Green Marketplace, and there will also be free live entertainment, special fun for the kids, and everyone can play the games that have been designed to help educate people about the benefits of sustainable energy. Reusable pop-up banners can be designed and prepared for an environmentally friendly themed function such as this by a local printing company.

All of this will be taking place in the South Edmonton Commons from June 8 until June 11. According to its organizers, its intended to be a family friendly function, and further details for anyone who wants more information can be found on the Explore Edmonton website.
