For the twelfth year in a row, the Go Green Brooklyn Festival is returning to McCarren Park.

The festival, taking place on Saturday, June 1 from noon to 5 p.m., is a celebration of sustainability, health and the environment in North Brooklyn.

Festival goers will get to enjoy live music performances by local musicians, food from neighborhood chefs, and arts displays from local creators.

Community groups, educators, local politicians and businesses will also be in attendance, providing information on sustainability efforts in the area. Tables will be arranged based on environmental issues, including transportation, energy, and food, so that attendees can learn about each issue from multiple perspectives.

For those looking to learn more about fitness, Greenpoint-based fitness studio Breakin Boundaries will be offering yoga classes during the festival.

A Greencycle Swap will be going on throughout the day where attendees can drop off or pick up gently used clothing, books, toys, electronics, and bicycles. Festival goers do not need to drop off items in order to take some home, but each person may be limited to one bag.
