DSC_5301

The Recycled Arts Festival is much more than a market for shopping (though we do hope you support the participating artists!); it's an experience! Here in the Clark County Solid Waste and Environmental Outreach team, we want to make sure that you can enjoy learning about reducing your environmental impact without spending a dime. To that end, we've got some really fantastic entertainment and attractions lined up this year. Over the next few weeks we're going to highlight some of the amazing artists joining us this year, as well as the nonprofits, performances, and hands-on activities that will make you want to spend an entire day with us at the Festival!
