Since its inception, SolarFest has bridged the gap between education and the arts by hosting popular long-running workshops such as a “weed walk” that highlights local plants, as well as practical hands-on workshops like Solar PV 101. This year, SolarFest will be offering over fifty workshops in diverse categories including Renewable Energy & Transportation, Farming & Food, Green Building, Music & Arts, and Sustainable Living & Activism.


Our new location at Earth Sky Time Community Farm in Manchester Center, Vermont demonstrates the power of our new partnerships and helps guarantee that generations will continue to say, “We learned this at SolarFest.”
