Attendees at SolarFest are focused on a clean-energy future. This eco-friendly event that champions renewable energy and sustainable living started in 1995 to showcase the possibilities of solar energy. Nationally recognized presenters include filmmaker and activist Josh Fox, performing his monologue The Truth Has Changed about American propaganda and misinformation; and Chris Martenson, author of 2011’s The Crash Course: The Unsustainable Future of Our Economy, Energy and Environment. Presented in partnership with the Stratton Mountain Summer Concert Series, the weekend isn’t all work and no play. Dancing, art, gondola rides and live music by Balkun Brothers and Gang of Thieves generate fun for the whole family.
