The Festival Will Feature

Don't forget to hydrate! Sustainable Neenah has generously donated the use of their "Bottled Water Killer" for The Big Green! Sustainable Fox Valley will be selling collapsible water bottles with a handy clip for only $3. Enjoy the water, and free refills throughout the event, and take the bottle home with you to reuse again and again! Collapsible bottles fold down for easy stashing in your pocket or purse, and the clip makes for hands-free fun! The bottles are made in the USA, and BPA-free, and proceeds benefit Sustainable Fox Valley, a 501c3. Got your own bottle? Bring it empty to The Big Green and we'll fill it at the Bottled Water Killer for free.

Mark your calendar for Saturday, Aug. 16, 2014 for the 3rd Annual Big Green Sustainable Music Festival.

Come help plan the party! Bring your friends, too! Find us on Facebook!

Numerous volunteers from last year's event are returning to help spread the message that healthy, fun, thriving — sustainable — communities start with us. Our heartfelt thanks for their inspiring accomplishments in 2013:

  • More than 800 people attended
  • Only slightly more than half an ounce of waste per attendee went to the landfill
  • A great time was had by all

Thanks, too, to The Community Foundation of the Fox Valley Region and all our sponsors, vendors and exhibitors for sharing the vision of a sustainable future.

As The Big Green grows to become one of SFV's main fundraisers, we are working tirelessly to create opportunities that offer our volunteers a truly exceptional experience. Please spread the word — from leaders to heavy lifters, all help is welcome.
