The Glen Ridge Eco-fair and the Arts Festival renew our community’s commitment to promoting a healthy and sustainable lifestyle and a greater respect for the environment in which we all live. By promoting these services and products, we hope to encourage everyone to become more conscientious about our choices and purchases. Indeed, it takes a village.
The Eco-Fair is sponsored by the borough’s Environmental Advisory Committee, the Glen Ridge Women’s Club and Pearl Premium Grass. As in past years, it is held in conjunction with the Arts Festival, making all-day live entertainment by local musicians and food concessions a vibrant part of the day’s festivities. So, mark your calendars for a can’t-miss town-wide celebration!
