PAONIA, COLO. (April 8, 2019) – Back for a fifth year, the North Fork Community Fair marks the beginning of this bucolic mountain valley’s festival season, and an opportunity to come together to celebrate each other and the positive actions we can take to support a healthy environment and climate, local farms and businesses, and a fun, vital community.

Hosted by the Colorado Farm & Food Alliance and The Learning Council, this year the event (formerly the Solar Fair and Permaculture Expo) is moving to Paonia Town Park.

For 2019 we’ll be back celebrating the North Fork with a full day of live music, activity, and local food and craft drinks.

The North Fork Community Fair mission is to celebrate community, support local businesses and groups, and to promote clean energy, permaculture, collaborative education, climate change action, and sustainable economies.

Our 2019 musical line-up includes: Pure Weed, the Kebler Elves, Hard Pressed, Ky Burt, Lizzy Plotkin, the North Fork Community Band, and other special guests!

Our Drink Local Station will feature products from Paonia United Brewing, West Elk Winery Association, Big B’s Hard Ciders and Organic Juices, and Remedy Juice Bar & Cafe. Food vendors include the Living Farm Cafe and Paonia Paella. Bliss Booch will be selling kombucha.  

This year workshop opportunities include Basics of Permaculture, Solar in the North Fork, Kids’ Climate Leadership, and Protecting & Defending Public Lands. Exhibitors and vendors include area non-profit and community groups, solar energy companies and organizations, artisans, artists, crafts and face-painting, farms and nurseries, and more.
