City announces first-ever Green Toronto Festival
The Green Toronto Festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, September 29, at Nathan Phillips Square, transforming it into a showcase for green technologies and newly emerging initiatives. As emcee, CityNews Tonight co-anchor Mark Dailey will welcome more than 40 exhibitors to the festival.

On display will be the newest developments and programs in the fields of energy efficiency, green transportation, air quality improvement, water efficiency, stormwater pollution and water quality, pesticide reductions, and much more. Residents can learn about City programs they can take advantage of in their homes, and also find out what industry leaders are doing to make Toronto a cleaner, greener city.

Field to Table will offer a selection of fresh, nutritious and delicious foods prepared with creative flair for $5 and Toronto’s own eco-troubadour, Chris McKhool, will entertain kids as well as adults, when he appears with the Sultans of String.

“With the Green Toronto Festival and Energy Challenge, we’re taking another step towards living green in our city,” said Toronto Mayor David Miller. “I encourage all Torontonians to come to this event and learn practical energy-saving solutions for home and work, and to find out about Toronto’s programs for a greener city. Together we can make Toronto an even cleaner and more beautiful city.”
