SparkOntario will be closing October 15, 2021 - Find out more here.
The EcoFair is 100% volunteer driven. It is a fun, community-based, family-oriented event that informs and inspires people to make greener choices in their homes and communities. It is organized by Green Neighbours Network and Transition Toronto. Whereas the 2020 EcoFair Toronto was entirely virtual, this year’s EcoFair will include online events Nov 5 and 6, and inlife exhibits and activities on Nov 7 at Artscape Wychwood Barns and outdoors in an adjacent Park.
The Exhibitor Coordinators are the main EcoFair liaisons for businesses and community groups that take part in the event. The Exhibitor Coordinators ensure that exhibitors provide all requirements to participate in the EcoFair, are kept engaged in the lead up to the event, and make sure that they have a great experience at the event.
