City green fair includes Eco-Elvis and more

Food trucks, farmers selling local produce and even Eco-Elvis are all on tap Thursday at a city-hosted Green Fair.

Kansas City invites residents to attend its 2013 KC Green Fair on Sept. 19 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Ilus Davis Park across the street from City Hall, 414 E. 12th St. The fair will highlight the innovative and sustainable initiatives of city departments and several city partners.

It also will feature a late afternoon urban garden tour at 18th Street and Broadway Boulevard.

“This year’s fair is all about local food and healthy lifestyles,” said Andy Savastino, the City’s environmental compliance manager, said in a press release. “Participants at the fair will be amazed, and hopefully inspired, by the wide variety of projects, programs and initiatives going on in the Kansas City area.”

The fair will include live demonstrations of green initiatives. Attendees who stop by the KC Green table will receive a free green bag and a “Ticket to Sustainability” that can be entered into prize drawings after visiting 10 exhibit booths.


  • At 4:30 p.m. visitors are invited to tour 18Broadway at the intersection of 18th Street and Broadway Boulevard, where an urban garden site demonstrates best practices in food production, storm water management and renewable energy. Parking is available along 18th and 19th streets and the alley. Sign up for the tour during the fair at the University of Missouri Extension Booth 15.
  • A short presentation of the KC Green Neighborhood awards will be made around noon.
