Ecofest is a family friendly festival hosted by First Unitarian Universalist Church of Wichita each year as a part of its campaign to create environmental awareness in our community.

Ecofest Wichita is an annual family festival that is held each year in early May at First Unitarian Universalist Church at 7202 East 21st Street North.

Since Ecofest Wichita’s inception in 2014, our ecological centered festival has provided a premier indoor/outdoor event where people are informed, get involved, find products, learn about services, and are entertained by people who care about the environment.

Through over 40 dynamic exhibits, speakers, social action groups, and vendors, EcoFest Wichita fosters public awareness about opportunities for environmental change. It spurs people to take the initiative in making their homes, businesses and communities more ecologically advanced and environmentally sound, while encouraging meaningful activation and participation.

We welcome sponsors, eco-activist groups, and vendors from any organization that provides products and services that contribute to environmental sustainability. Find out when your lawn has enough water, how to compost, and come face to face with vermiculture while shopping with family and friends!

All items are earth friendly and vary from year to year. Come see the unique things that can be made from items you find in nature or around the house.!

Vendors

Our vendors, in keeping with our green philosophy, sell organic candles, soaps, furniture, aromatherapy, bird houses, jewelry, and local honey, in addition to a wide range of baked goods. Local artists and craft makers turn newspapers into woven baskets, twigs into critters, seed pods and dried fruit peel into jewelry, or antique wall papers into greeting cards.

Green Thumb Plant Sale

We will have lots of established plants and seedlings available for purchase at very reasonable prices. Plants provide oxygen for the environment, attract wildlife, and give us fresh, affordable food for our tables and our neighbors’ tables. Also, planting provides peace of mind. Be sure to stock up this spring!

Advocacy Groups

Several advocacy groups will be represented too.
