Dana Volkswagen in Northampton will be hosting its first “Green Day at Dana VW” eco-fair this Saturday, Dec. 12, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event will be held in and around the dealership’s showroom, located at 968 Bridge Road, and will feature products and displays from a variety of local agricultural and Green-oriented businesses. Attendees can:

- Taste Local Foods and Beverages

Among the vendors partners participating in the Green Day event, Hamilton Orchards from New Salem and Barts/Snows will be vending food, Dean’s Beans will be serving free coffee, and the Greenfield Solar Store will be demonstrating solar power (using its portable, trailer-mounted photovoltaic array) along with other eco-friendly products and practices. The event is educational (Center for Ecological Technology will be there) as well as a holiday fair where consumers can purchase locally produced products, learn about real estate located near bike trails, and even get hard-to-find music (from Turn It Up!). Test drives of Volkswagen’s clean diesels (42 mpg highway) will be occurring throughout the day, as well as drawings for various vendors’ products and services.
