It’s new! It’s exciting! It’s the third annual Sustain Arvada Festival!

It’s free fun for everyone and a great place to learn more

about supporting local choices and creating a sustainable community.

Focused on living sustainably, the festival includes exhibits, adult's and children’s activities (for more information on kids and family activities, see related links), food, lively music, and informative presentations – all based on learning fun and easy ways to conserve resources and enjoy living sustainably through earth-friendly practices. Spend a day at the festival and learn how to trim your energy waistline; recycle, reclaim, repurpose, and reuse; reduce waste; conserve resources; and practice community sustainability. Learn how the City of Arvada is conserving resources, generating its own power, recycling and composting, and leading the way in responsible governmental sustainability.

Fine Arts and Craft Fair: We are excited about the opportunity for art vendors this year and products should sell well. We encourage creativity and business resources that promote sustainability as well as the sale of products that approach 50 percent recycled and repurposed or vintage materials.

The Sustain Arvada Festival is a way of honoring Arvada’s rich heritage and preserving our resources to foster economic prosperity, environmental stewardship and community vitality today and into the future. Fine art and craft is valued in Arvada’s sustainable theme. Vendors can also expect to see other vendors and exhibitors that incorporate water and energy conservation, transportation, and agriculture topic areas.

Attendees are encouraged to carpool, take a bus, walk, or ride a bike to this event.

Produced by the Arvada Festivals Commission and the Arvada Sustainability Advisory Committee, this event demonstrates our support of the preservation of natural resources and our commitment to fostering economic prosperity, environmental stewardship, and community vitality--today and into the future.

Become an eco hero!  This event is a Zero Waste event where the majority of the waste is diverted from the landfill through recycling and composting.

The Arvada Festivals Commission and the Arvada Sustainability Advisory Committee are appointed by the Arvada City Council. For more information or to volunteer for this fun event, call 720-898-7403.
