Stockholm Green Festival
The next summer festival is coming up this weekend (July 1st-3rd)... Stockholm Green Festival. This is the second year they've run this festival and, as the name suggests, it celebrates "green" products and promotes a more sustainable lifestyle. Sweden is very proud of its green movement and enviromental consciousness, so why not celebrate it? After all, Stockholm was the awarded the title European Green Capital in 2010. The first city to be designated so! The festival takes place in Kungsträdgården, located in the downtown area. Entrance to the festival is free and it's open between 11am and 11pm on Friday and Saturday and 11am and 8pm on Sunday. There will be live music, seminars, fashion shows and plenty of fun activities for children. There will also be a food court where visitors can enjoy organic food and drink. It's just a 25 minute walk through the Old town to get to the park/festival from the Rival Hotel... otherwise you can take the subway to T-Centralen (exit Sergelstorg).
