Energy Fair is September 9-10 at Harriet Island Park
The Midwest Renewable Energy Association is hosting an Energy Fair, September 9 and 10, at Harriet Island Park, in St. Paul. Held from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, this event showcases renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable living through education and demonstration in the power and energy industry.
The longest running event of its kind in the nation, the fair features interactive workshops, exhibitors, live music, inspiring keynote speakers, family fun, great local food and more. Midwest Renewable Energy hosts their Energy Fair every summer in Wisconsin and this year was their 28th annual event. This is the first time they will be holding a second Energy Fair in the Twin Cities.
The fair offers more than 60 workshops from which to choose along with more than 80 exhibitors. Free and open to the public, all access passes include music, featured speakers and solar professional workshops. There is also a pre-fair Solar Professional Day on September 8 for those working in the solar industry.

The shuttle begins at 8:30 a.m. Pick-up and drop-off at Union Depot are located in front of the building on the eastbound side, at 240 E. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul, and there will be a sign on the sidewalk marking the location.
