East End GreenFest returns to Mattituck next weekend

The main stage at the 2009 East End

The main stage at the 2009 East End GreenFest at the Strawberry Fields Fairgrounds in Mattituck, NY.

Next weekend, July 24 and 25, at the Strawberry Fields Fairgrounds in Mattituck, the East End GreenFest will be celebrating the local green and environmentally friendly businesses.

The event will showcase 10 live local bands and entertainers on a solar-powered stage, and will feature local wineries, renewable energy exhibits and hands-on demonstrations, healthy and organic food, a farmers market, local artists and natural, handcrafted products for sale.

Sure, all the events and freebies are great. Even better that the two-day family-friendly event comes with an important message to boot -- live green!

GreenFest organizers ask that all attendees bring a nonperishable food item, household item or personal care product to support the local food bank, CAST (Community Action Southold Town). Tickets are available at the gate and are $3 for adults; children under 12 get in free.

The first 200 paid adult ticket holders each day who bring a nonperishable donation for CAST will receive a free GreenFest T-shirt.
