Announcing the 2017 Pensacola Clean Energy Fest


Pensacola’s third annual Clean Energy Fest brings renewable energy and fun to downtown Pensacola on Saturday, Nov. 4, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event celebrates a clean energy future through art, food, live music, and dynamic people showcasing solar, wind, and people-power for the 21st century.

The event includes Crossing Boundaries: Art and the Future of Energy --a juried art exhibition featuring works by national and local artists in all genres to give artistic expression to a clean energy future. Displays of electric cars and solar panels show the latest real-world applications of clean energy and conservation. A newly-built tiny house constructed by Pensacola State College Students inspires with innovative design that makes small live large.

Goldman Prize-winning poet Hilton Kelley shares his work blending the power of words with the urgency of environmental justice. Children’s activities with hands-on lessons in conservation and clean energy will take place all day long. The event features live music from a range of national and local acts.
