The 8th Annual NW SolarFest, a renewable energy & sustainable living fair, July 16 at Shoreline Community College, will feature solar cooking demonstrations with Graham Kerr, long known as the Galloping Gourmet. Though he's cooked practically everything under the sun, Kerr just recently discovered the joy of solar cooking. NW SolarFest will be his first public demonstration of his new craft.

NW SolarFest is the place to go for ideas on transitioning to a more sustainable lifestyle. Take the family and make a day of it. You will want to return every year!

NW SolarFest has grown into the region’s largest and longest running locally organized renewable energy event. It is produced by the nonprofit Shoreline Solar Project and is supported by the City of Shoreline, Seattle City Light, Shoreline Community College and many others.
