Third annual Pasco Ecofest seeks vendors for fall event

Pasco County, Florida -- Pasco EcoFest is evolving, this year with a focus on growing the local economy and culture in West Central Florida and with a new host organization, The Friends of the Library, which supports the New Port Richey Public Library. Through hands-on education and experiences, the event organizers aim to encourage a holistic ecological awareness that encompasses the cultural, natural, and economic systems of our local region.

Pasco EcoFest 2013 is on the calendar for November 8, 9 & 10 providing a great opportunity for families and eco adventurers from Florida and beyond a mini-vacation right here in Pasco County that can be customized to fit personal tastes from high energy adventure to mellow meanderings.  

With the expectation of thousands of visitors at this popular event, the planning committee is looking for a variety of vendors to be a part of the festivities. Vendor opportunities can include fresh produce, garden art, non-profit organizations, designers of handcrafted jewelry and homemade items. This event is especially interested in organic, sustainable and creative products and goods.  For details: http://www.PascoEcoFest.com

Project managers Kira and Kacey Atkinson, graduates from USF's Environmental Science and Policy program, are at the helm of this county-sponsored event for the second year and look forward to making it an event the community can be proud of.  

“We’re really excited about the enthusiasm we’re seeing from people we talk to about this event,” says co-manager Kira Atkinson. “It’s nice to know there are so many like-minded people living in this area who want to get involved in making Pasco an awesome place to live.”

Pasco EcoFest 2013 will span three days at two different locations—Sims Park and Starkey Park. Guests will have the opportunity to explore beautiful West Pasco by kayaking, wading through swamps, and learning about native plants and medicinal herbs on nature walks through Starkey Park. They will also have the chance to learn about our native wildlife through interactive exhibits and talks. 

Sponsorship opportunities are available for businesses and organizations, large and small that wish to get involved in enhancing the culture of West Pasco.  The event managers are also seeking green businesses or businesses who offer green products and services to partner with for this event. Contact Kacey Atkinson at (727) 809-2306 or managers@pascoecofest.com.
