FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 8, 2023
Heights EcoFest is a unique family friendly-community-building event where visitors are invited to connect with local resources and join in activities designed to promote and expand awareness of sustainable practices and intended to inspire and promote a greener and healthier lifestyle.
The lineup of exhibitors and partners is extensive and organized in four categories: Sustainable Living; Healthy Living; Eco Kids; and a nature inspired Art Zone. This year’s theme is 'This Art is for the Birds,' a brainchild of artist Robin VanLear, founder of Art Acts, who is collaborating with Lake Erie Ink and Artful to bring awareness, through creative experimentation, to the fragility and importance of birds to our natural world. The immersive art experience invites children and adults alike to write poetry, explore sidewalk chalk art, and craft birds from upcycled materials while learning why and how to care for them. The fair will also feature performances by local artists, healthy and sustainably sourced food for purchase, yoga, tai chi, cardio drumming, and dance in the park.
In addition, Goodwill of Greater Cleveland and East Central Ohio will be on location providing the community an opportunity to recycle clothing, household items, home décor, electronics (working and non-working), toys and books.
Heights EcoFest will take place on the beautiful grounds on Coventry PEACE Park on Saturday May 27 from 12.00 to 4.00 pm and is hosted by Heights Libraries and the Cleveland Heights Green Team in partnership with FutureHeights and the Coventry Village Special Improvement District.
