Recruiting Green Fair Vendors–Businesses who are committed to being “Green”

By Jacqui Flaherty, Program Manager

The City of Akron, Summit County Government and Downtown Akron Partnership (DAP) are collaborating to host a “Green Fair” in downtown Akron on May 3, 2013. We are inviting businesses to participate! The purpose of the Green Fair is to educate our workforce, business associates, and citizens and encourage the use of green products for daily use in the workplace.

The Green Fair will take place at Lock 3, 200 South Main Street, in downtown Akron, on Friday May 3rd, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event will be held on the same day as Downtown Akron Partnership’s ‘Green and Clean,‘ which is part of Clean Up Akron Month and the Great American Cleanup.

The Green Fair can accommodate 20 vendors in outdoor or covered space. The event will be held rain or shine. The City of Akron will provide up to two tables for each vendor to display their environmentally friendly products or services.

Please fill out the registration form and return to Jerry Roberts, Purchasing Agent, 166 S. High Street–Room 501, AKron, OH 44308 by April 19, 2013.
