“I successfully started the annual Eco Fest event in Toledo and now I’ve done the same in Fort Wayne,” said Addie Farris, eco enthusiast and founder of the local event. “I want to increase awareness about sustainability and educate our community on its importance to our environment, our planet, and our collective health.”

Farris launched Toledo’s annual Eco Fest in 2019, and after a successful event, planned to do the same in Fort Wayne. Although it was postponed a few months, she pulled off the first Eco Fest event in Fort Wayne in year 2020 despite the pandemic. The event is family-friendly and includes workshops, food, music, and retail and nonprofit vendors whose missions and practices push forward sustainability.
