Alton Marketplace and the Piasa Palisades Group of the Sierra Club are proud to announce the 9th Annual Green Gift Bazaar Saturday, November 26 from 10:00am to 4:00pm at Community Center. The Bazaar features over 30 juried crafters and artists who create earth friendly one-of-a-kind, all natural, recycled or up-cycled gifts, made in the USA (all are actually made locally in the RiverBend and St. Louis region!).

New this year is the addition of a free film festival spotlighting three environmentally-themed films focusing on water issues, local food, and environmental stewardship and sustainability. The festival will begin at 11:00am with showing of TROUBLED WATERS, followed by FRESH at 12:30pm and culminating with BAG IT at 2:00pm. Organic popcorn and beverages will be offered during the film festival, which is co-sponsored by LCCC, the Confluence Partnership, La Vista Ecological Learning Center, and the St. Louis Confluence Riverkeeper.
