Greenfest 2011 was a very successful launch into LETS GET GREEN! It was held on May 21, 2010 at Kennedy Plaza in Long Beach, NY. We had 40 Vendors and 3 bands in total including The Long Beach Farmers Market & Art in the Plaza. Some 2000 people attended and were educated in Green areas of Solar Energy, Healthy Eating, Home Living & Eco-Products for every day living. You can't have a good Greenfest without thanking all our vendors, sponsors and people who helped make Greenfest 2011 a huge success. The 2010 Vendors returned with a vengence to overcome the bad weather from the October event and get their messages of Green to the public. And they did. Thank you to all who texted the words GREENFEST to 90210. You can still be added to our mailing list by doing this.

Special Thank you to Honorable Denise Ford, Guest Speaker, Councilpersons Lenny Torres & Mona Goodman for attending. If i neglected to mention anyone here, my sincerest apologies for the blunder. Greenfest takes a lot of planning, talking and negotiating, getting sponsors and asking people for a lot of support. People are generous and kind for a cause. This was about spreading the message of Green and taking this message beyond Long Beach into the reaches of Long Island and we did a good job of doing just that.
