Mission:  Learn. Grow.

Celebrate Earth Day at this fun festival with exhibits, speakers, films, music, food & more focused on making a positive impact on our environment.

The heart of the festival is the Eco Expo, and exhibitors will use their presence to promote their achievements as green leaders, and teach attendees how to take environmentally responsible action by better utilizing available resources, switching to eco-friendly products, or joining their organizations.

In addition to the Eco Expo, attendees will have a number of educational entertainment options, which will include:

Kick off of Good Local Markets' new location in Lakewood. The venue features local farmers, ranchers, beekeepers, bakers, makers and artisans each Sunday at the Lakewood Village Farmers Market.

All vendors come from 150 mile radius of Dallas and are required to grow or make what they sell at market! Good Local Markets staff even visits each farm and ranch to ensure locally grown. No reselling, no distributors, just all local produce
