2017 Climate Carnival – Pittsboro

$5 – $30

Saturday, MAY 13 – Climate Carnival Noon to 8pm
(held at The Plant, 220 Lorax Lane Pittsboro NC)

This year, we’re stepping away from the formal conference and partnering with Chatham County to host a vibrant educational faire – a carnival! – where traditional keynote speakers & plenary panels can come alive with artistic expression, hands-on workshops, deep community interaction, live music, and more…
Saturday’s carnival will include hands-on activities, short films, education tables, local organization booths, artists and vendors boasting eco-friendly products or services, live music, artistic performances, food vendors, and several speaker sessions throughout the day. The evening will wrap up with an After Party.

Friday, MAY 12 – Amuse Bouche 7.00-8.30pm
(held at the new Chatham County Agriculture Building 1192 US 64 West, Pittsboro NC)

**Amuse Bouche is our preview of what is to come the next day.
Keeping with tradition, we’ll hold our annual Amuse Bouche the night before the carnival! The evening will feature a speaker panel moderated by WUNC’s State of Things Host, Frank Stasio. Greg Fishel of WRAL will be the featured panelists along with others to be announced.
