32nd Annual Crestone Energy Fair 

RECONNECT: Self...Village...Nature
August 28 & 29, 2021
Happy Summer Solstice!   
Spring was filled with amazing community events and collaborations from the SLV Seed Exchange, to Beltane Celebration to the Dark Skys Event, Gardening Festival, PermaPeaceFest and finally the Neighbors Helping Neighbors Yard Sale. Thank you for everyone who came together to create these beautiful gatherings. As we near the Summer Solstice, we are moving along with the seasons... like the sun, our energy is rising and growing to plan this year's event. We are excited to expand back to a 2-day format filled with educational presentations, workshops, home tours, vendors, music and performances.  You will find links to a Home Survey, Presenter Applications, Vendor Applications, Kids Area and Sponsorship packages below. The event will be livestreamed again this year to reach a broader audience who may not be able to join us in person. We will have more information about  the schedule of events, Conscious Kitchen and volunteer opportunities in our next newsletter. 

Please visit our website for more information and subscribe to our Facebook group and YouTube channel to see inspiring  & educational videos.

"One of the jewels of Crestone that I love so much is the amazing architecture that has been realized here. It is truly inspiring what a human mind can imagine and then build. For decades, Crestone has been a place of freedom for creativity in the home building process and we are concerned that many builders are not taking the natural environment and our resources into consideration.  We would really appreciate it if everyone could take this survey and help us get an understanding of where the path of home building has come from and where it is going. There are so many beautiful homes here and I hope to start archiving the stories behind them. Please feel free to be as detailed as you like and only share what you are comfortable with.
