ShareFest 2015 Discussion

  • Dorris Carsoln Reading Garden, Central Library 115 South Ave Rochester, NY, 14604 United States (map)

ShareFest is an event that has taken place all over the world, where a city comes together and shares their goods, resources, knowledge and talents. Rochester’s ShareFest will be July 13 – 19 at locations throughout the city.

Andre will explain the origin and philosophy of ShareFest and invite people to host events in their own communities. Events could include: a repair café, gift circle, jam session, upcycling event, potluck or stranger dinner, and a seed swap. 

A highlight of ShareFest is the FreeMarket, a cross between a free garage sale and a party. People can take their used goods to 62 N Union between Monday, July 13 and Friday, July 17 for the big giveaway at that location on Saturday, July 18, from 9am-5pm. The public is also welcome to share skills at the event, such as playing the guitar, knitting, and painting.
