Virginia, Minnesota

The 18th Annual 
Back to Basics

Earth Fest is an annual event initiated by the Iron Range Partnership for Sustainability. It is the largest sustainability fair on the Range, attracting over a thousand participants. Earth Fest connects people from all over the Range around topics that foster a future that our children can be proud of. What do we need to do in order to leave the Iron Range in better shape than we found it? How can we meet our needs without compromising our grandchildren’s ability to meet theirs? That’s the question we address at Earth Fest. We invite you to join the larger conversation.
