Apeiron’s Sustainable Living Festival, June 7 & 8

On June 7th and 8th, the Apeiron Institute for Sustainable Living (apeiron.org) is holding its annual Rhode Island Sustainable Living Festival & Clean Energy Expo. And the Providence Bicycle Coalition is helping Apeiron to offer a way to get to the event via sustainable, muscle-powered transportation!

For both days of the festival, a “bike train” will travel the East Coast Greenway route from downtown Providence to the event site in Coventry, about 22 miles away. All registrants coming to the fest on the bike train will get free admission and goodies. Plus, the first 50 registrants will receive a free t-shirt designed exclusively for the bike train cyclists!

This annual event features great music, fun and informational workshops, and many vendors and cool displays related to sustainable living.
