2007 update: the Camden Green Fair is at Regents Park - new website

THE CAMDEN GREEN FAIR
London’s Biggest Green Gathering!
Sunday 4th July 2004 - 12pm - 7pm

St James Gardens, Cardington Street, NW1. The Camden Green Fair & Bikfest is probably the biggest green gathering in the London calendar. This year the event, which attracted over 5,000 people in 2003, will take place on Sunday 4th July at St James Garden, Cardington Street, NW1 from 12pm to 7pm. The park is easily accessible from Euston, Euston Square and Warren Street Underground Stations. Admission is free.

The Fair celebrates everything going on in Camden, in London and around the world to protect and improve our environment and quality of life - showing everyone how to have fun with a low environmental impact. There is a stage with live entertainment, a children and young people’s area; a health village; arts and crafts; organic food and drink; exhibits by community groups and charities; clean vehicles; demonstrations of energy conservation, renewable energy, recycling and other ways to reduce environmental impact; and local, national and international environmental organizations; and much more!

The Fair is made possible thanks to the support of Camden Council, Camden Greening Forum, CEEN, Groundwork, Camden Cycling Campaign and many other volunteers. Groundwork’s Julian Jacobs says “We are very proud that Camden is at the forefront of promoting green technology and good practice. This event provides an opportunity for people to have a fun day out and learn a bit more about how we can protect and improve our environment”. Councillor John Thane, Chair of the Council’s Environment Committee, supports the event: “Camden is leading the field in many environmental areas, such as green transport and recycling. The Green Fair is a great opportunity to tell people what we are doing, to showcase the other brilliant initiatives people are taking in Camden, and encourage people to take their own action to improve the environment”.

There is a car free test circuit with all kinds of human-powered vehicles, bicycle workshops, a children’s obstacle course, guided rides and opportunities to sign up for cycle training.
