Sustainability Festival – an annual celebration!

An annual festival, all about living sustainably and protecting the environment – across St Albans, Harpenden and villages. It’s our district – we love it! And we want to make it sustainable for generations to come. Visit the festival website at for more information and to sign up to the festival mailing list.o eve

Take Part and join the community movement!

Our Annual SustFest invites community groups, businesses, schools, street groups, and faith groups to organise environmentally sustainable events and activities for their local communities over two weeks each year. The aim of the festival is to inspire residents across the district to live more sustainably, do practical things to care for the environment and #BeKindToThePlanet.


2022 Festival was held in May, starting with a sunny market in Harpenden and with a range of activities in person, online and hybrid… We’re pulling together the evaluation now. Thanks to everyone who took part!


2021 was an important year for the climate and our environment, with the UK hosting the global Climate Conference – COP26 in Glasgow in November. Our activities inspired engagement and action and involved over 150 events from 100 different groups and communities!
