Looking for a way to spend Earth Day weekend?
Check out the event that bills itself as the world’s largest green expo — the 13th annual EarthX.
The free three-day Earth Day celebration kicks off Friday and continues through Sunday at Fair Park in Dallas.
EarthX was founded in 2011 by Dallas-based philanthropist Trammell S. Crow as Earth Day Dallas. Since then, every year, the event has gotten bigger — that is, until the pandemic.
Last year, the event was held at a smaller venue downtown, following two years of virtual and hybrid events.
This year, the expo is back in full swing with hundreds of exhibitors returning to the historic venue.
Green Source DFW will be there in the Centennial Hall, Booth 4201. Stop by and say hello!
