Earth Fest is a celebration of local traditions and practical resources for sustainable living on the Iron Range of northeastern Minnesota. The event offers opportunities to explore how we can all live more sustainably in our homes and communities, our economy, and our environment. Participants are invited to learn about new and existing technological approaches as well as rediscover some of our long standing local traditions. The event will tap into the knowledge of cutting-edge experts as well as local indigenous knowledge through exhibits, demonstrations, speakers, and vendors. Emphasis is placed on local products, local services, local foods, local entertainment, and our local wilderness.
