There is still room for a few more vendors at the upcoming Riverbend Earth Day Festival. The 3rd annual installment of the event boasts more space for not only vendors, but also activities and participants, as it is being held at a new location. Piasa Harbor on the Great River Road will be its new home this year.
Previously hosted at The Nature Institute on Levis Lane in Godfrey it has outgrown that space. TNI’s Amy Curry says they have partnered with the Sierra Club, Great Rivers Land Trust, The National Great Rivers Research and Education Center and the Green Business Alliance to bring more attention to the event which she hopes will attract an audience from a larger radius than ever before.
