Blues and Jazz Festival Goes Green
JULY 30, 2014-- For the 22nd year the Blues and Jazz Festival will bring out the crowds as 10 different entertainers take the stage in Erie. But the music isn’t the only way the event is making an impact on the community, the festival has been eco-friendly for years and encourages vendors to go green while they enjoy the sounds of nationally and internationally acclaimed artists. It’s the largest two-day Blues and Jazz Festival in the region and officials say they do simple things like offer proper recycling at the event to help the environment. Vendors also use products that can be broken down naturally. Even the t-shirts for the event are made from organic cotton. The festival begins on Saturday at noon.
