From a press release:
Wheatland is gearing up for its first-ever Green Festival to be held Aug. 20-22. The Green Festival will feature guest speakers from various businesses who will discuss wind energy, clean coal and much more. In addition to the speakers, the festival will feature hands-on exhibits designed to educate all ages about the value of taking care of the environment.
Participating vendors will include local growers, artisans, crafters, nursery and greenhouse operators and more. In addition, there will be a quilt show, bake sales, a farmers’ market, garden walks, pet parades and a square dance.
According to organizer Dan Brecht, director of the Platte County Economic Development Corp., there is still plenty of room for anyone who wants to set up a booth or exhibit their wares.
All events will be held in downtown Wheatland, at Lewis City Park and the Wheatland High School Auditiorium. Anyone interested in participating may contact Brecht at 307-322-4232.
The event is free to both vendors and the public, and Brecht is hoping that visitors will come from throughout the region to enjoy the day.
