Special Note: The Organicfest is presented to celebrate National Organic Harvest Month. The organic industry is one of the fastest growing, consumer driven industries in the United States. This special event, (co-sponsored local and national businesses and organizations) is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate, highlight and promote the pure, organic food and products available in our community, create a connection to the people who grow and supply organic, and find out why organic is good for people and the planet

Organicfest 2015 Celebration

Asheville’s annual Organicfest celebration will bring thousands to Pack Square Park to celebrate everything organic, green and healthy! In celebration of National Organic Month,, the Organicfest was created to spotlight, connect and share and grow our rich organic community of farmers, artists and businesses. 

Everyone is invited to attend the 14th annual Organicfest celebration on Sunday, August 30, 2015. Join us for a festive day with local entertainers such as Chris Rosser, Sheri Lynn, Greenway and many more.  The Organicfest Marketplace features an array of local organic and green products, businesses and services with offerings from food and gardening to flowers and fashion as well as beautiful and unique natural arts and crafts. Participants can also take home plenty of awesome information about growing organic gardens and living more organic, sustainable, eco-friendly lifestyles that are good for people and the planet!

Each year, donations from local and national businesses are gathered for the popular Organicfest drawings with lucky winners taking home fabulous organic gifts, goodies and gift certificates throughout the day.

This family event includes lots of fun and eco-friendly activities for children, including special entertainment on the Imagine OrganicKidz stage. And you won’t want to miss the Organicfest Pollinator Parade where kids (and their parents) are invited to come dressed as their favorite good bug (honeybee, ladybug, butterfly or garden fairy!) and parade throughout the park in a joyous celebration of the bounty of the garden and the importance of pollinators.

Organicfest is presented by a local, all-volunteer non-profit group in partnership with Asheville Greenworks to present a low impact, green event. The greening of Organicfest will include recycling and composting. Sponsors include: Organic Matters Media, Mountain Rose Herbs, Natural Lifestyle, SilitCookware.com, 880 AM The Revolution, Gran Fondo National Championship Series, The Laurel of Asheville, Natural Awakenings, 98.1 The River, Great Life Global, Asheville.com, Ashevillage Institute, Local Flavor Asheville, and other local and national businesses and services.

Join the celebration of everything organic, green, good, health and fun at the Organicfest 2014. For more information visit: www.organicfest.org
