Jun 20: Allegheny SolarFest

Join SUNWPA (Solar Unified Network of Western Pennsylvania) and the Borough of Millville for Allegheny SolarFest!  Celebrate the power of the sun, and find out how to go solar in Western Pennsylvania!  
Last year’s SolarFest was such a glowing success (more than 800 people attended!), it's happening again this year -- with expanded activities and great music!  SolarFest is an opportunity to demonstrate to Allegheny County that we can realize the full potential of clean, renewable energy in Southwestern Pennsylvania.  SolarFest will include opportunities to visit with solar installers, solar owners and 25 exhibitors, take a trial run on an electric assist bike, look under the hoods of a Tesla, Chevy Volt and BMWi3 electric cars, climb Venture Outdoors climbing wall, listen to some great live music by Ben Shannon, Tiger Maple String Band and Beagle Brothers, and partake in fun activities for kids of all ages with our vendors and exhibitors, including a solar toy car races, scavenger hunt, face painting, and human-powered water cannons.  Solar demonstrations and activities will occur throughout the day. Food will be available from the well-known solar-powered food trucks, including Pittsburgh Taco Truck and Randita’s -- and the entire event will be powered with solar generators.  And, did we mention?  Microbrews will be available from Millvale’s Grist House Brewing this year!

11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Millville Riverfront Park.  Register and more information at www.sunwpa.org.  Facebook: www.facebook.com/sunwpa .

Parking Note:  While there will probably be ample parking at the festival site, there is also abundant parking at on Washington’s Landing under the 31st street bridge.  From there, it’s an easy walk or bike ride on the North Shore Trail Riverfront (going north) to the Millvale Riverfront Park.
