Mark Your Calendars

On Saturday, July 16, the inaugural Columbia County Climate Carnival will take place at the Columbia County Fairgrounds in Chatham from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

The event will include:
  • Repair Cafe  Fixers will repair lamps, jewelry, clothing, vases, bikes, small appliances, as well as sharpening knives (You're encouraged to sign up for the Repair Cafe here, so the fixers know what to expect.) 
  • Free Store  Take home gently used clothing, kids’ stuff, home goods, sporting goods
  • Renewable Energy Education  Learn about clean energies available right here in Columbia County
  • Bike Recycling  Get a bike, save on gas
  • Composting  How to do it, where to do it, why to do it
  • Perennial wildflowers and “biochar”  For pollinating and sequestering carbon
  • Live Birds of Prey Exhibitions and a Beekeeper  We’re not the only ones who live on this Earth
There will also be children's programming provided by the Columbia County Library Association and the Southern Vermont Natural History Museum. Bands will play throughout the day, and there will be a live, interactive "quiz," as well as food trucks.

This Columbia County event is being presented by the Climate Smart Communities Task Force and organized by a committee of volunteers in several towns across the county, from both public and private organizations. Individuals or groups who would like contribute to, take part in, or volunteer at this event can go to, or send an email to
