Eco-Fair 2022 Registration


The Susquehanna Headwaters Environmental Collaborative (SHEC) is excited to announce a new event: Eco-Fair. This inaugural event will be held on Saturday, July 9th from 11am to 4pm at Neahwa Park in Oneonta. Eco-Fair will feature a vendor fair, electric vehicle car show, live entertainment including Birds of Prey, local band performances, an environmentally themed puppet show, exhibits on sustainability and the environment, and much more. We are seeking exhibitors and vendors to share their eco-friendly products, programs, educational opportunities, and services at the event, and we would like to invite you to participate.

We are thrilled to invite local organizations and businesses to share their knowledge and goods with our patrons. Eco-Fair will maintain many elements from the traditional Earth Festival —the vendor fair, food trucks, children’s activities, and more, along with the opportunity to share your message, products, and services with a large number of people. Please take a moment to review the information below to be part of Eco-Fair 2022. We have also included information about sponsorship levels and donations should you wish to support the Eco-Fair in another way. 

The early bird registration deadline (discounted rate) is 5pm on May 20, 2022.

Thank you for your support and participation!
