SustainaFest promotes environmental awareness through activities, film

Mark your calendars for Saturday, Sept. 12, 2015, when the annual SustainaFest returns to Indian Creek Upper School in Crownsville, Md. SustainaFest’s goal is to educate Maryland residents about the critical condition of the Chesapeake Bay and the environment through live music, film showings, children’s activities and interactive educational exhibits.

The festival will begin at 1 p.m. and close with a 6:30 p.m. showing of the touring Telluride Mountainfilm. This inspiring documentary features stories of individuals in grassroots communities tackling environmental and social issues.

In the afternoon, families can relax on the lawn and listen to live music; tour two student-built, off-grid tiny houses; and visit the Kiddie Korner, where kids can make fun and educational crafts.

Attendees can also learn about healthier living through demonstrations and explore the work of innovative organizations, businesses and nonprofit organizations.

Local food trucks will sell food and drinks, with adult beverages for sale from local breweries and wineries. Lighthouse culinary students will provide culinary lessons.

Early bird tickets are now on sale online. Please note that seats for the Mountainfilm showing are limited.

Tickets for the festival and the movie are $20 adults and $15 for ages 6-18. Children 5 and younger are free. Day passes that don’t include the film are $10 each.
