2020 Mercer Green Fest on March 14, 2020 at Rider University 11am-4pm

Mercer Green Fest, in its 14th year, has now become a family tradition. Come one and all to this annual FREE, fun, entertaining, and educational festival! Rain or shine, we are expecting over 100 vendors including sustainable businesses, farmers market, non-profit organizations, school and student projects, art, energy programs, and much more.

This year a giant map of Lawrence Township will cover a wall where everyone can draw, write, and imagine their favorite spots in Lawrence. Let’s create a “Vision of the Future Lawrence Township” by adding our neighborhood dreams, popular walking paths, and choice biking trails – everything goes!  Mercer Transportation Management Association (TMA) will be handing out copies of their new trail network plan just in time for your family to plan a spring bike ride.

The Green Fest is a family-friendly event with a fantastic live music and show line-up:

11:30am-12:30pm Miss Amy’s Band

12:30pm-1:00pm   Tucker’s Tales Puppet Show

1:00pm-2:00pm     Eyes of the World Zoo

2:00pm-2:30pm     Tucker’s Tales Puppet Show

2:30pm-3:30pm     Solar Man

There will be lots to do and see. Electric cars are becoming so popular. Speak with an expert while checking out the different kinds of makes and models available. At least 7 schools and scout groups will be showcasing their sustainable science projects. Children can make their very own puppets. Food and snacks will be available by Terhune Orchards all day with treats such as cider, donuts, soup, chili, cookies, and apples. Plan to spend the afternoon with us!

Mercer Green Fest will be held on Saturday, March 14, 2020 from 11am-4pm located in the Rider University Student Recreation Center on the main campus, 2083 Lawrenceville Rd, Lawrenceville, NJ.
