The 14th Sustainable Living Fair is held at Legacy Park, 300 Woodlawn Drive in the Heart of Fort Collins, alongside the Cache la Poudre River. • Fair Layout Map - 2013 SLF Venue Map
NEW PARKING LOT for 2013! We have a 12-acre lot off of Buckingham Street, just north of Odell Brewing that will be available to ALL fair-goers this year. A FREE shuttle bus will run every 15 minutes to-and-from the Fair both days, compliments of the Mishawaka Event Bus.
There is LIMITED ON-SITE PARKING at the Fair Grounds, only Handicap Parking and BIKES may access the venue from Woodlawn Drive.
Another option is to ride to the fair in the cleanest and greenest of transportation – An Electric Car! Through a partnership with Drive Electric Northern Colorado, Tynan’s Nissan and Dellenbach Chevrolet - if you park in the official Fair parking lot behind Odell Brewing, you can ride or drive to the Fair in an electric Volt or Leaf.

From the beginning, we’ve been a Bike-to-the Fair event. We love what it looks like when 1000 bikes show up and mark the entrance to The Sustainable Living Fair. Our Bike Valet will handle you ride with class, supported by the professionals at the SOCIAL CYCLES.
We will have Handicapped Parking at the Main Entrance and vehicles and volunteers within the fair grounds to assist those with limited mobility.
