March 13-14, 2020, 9am to 3pm

For 28 years, ECHO has been host to Southwest Florida’s premier festival focusing on sustainable living, agriculture, and food. Partnering with local organizations and businesses, ECHO’s Global Food and Farm Festival has provided thousands of attendees with the opportunity to taste exotic foods, experience life in a foreign country, and explore the Global Farm, learning about food and culture in a new way.

Spend the day at our 50-acre Global Farm and tour a tropical rainforest demonstration, the 300+ variety seed bank, take an educational tour of the fruit tree arboretum, or learn about alternative energies as they are demonstrated in the appropriate technology area! Kids of all ages can taste, touch, and experience their way around the world as they learn about world hunger and ways they can make an impact!

Tickets are just $5.00 per person, 8 and under are free if purchased in advance. You may also purchase tickets the day of the event for $7.00 per person, 8 and under free.

We invite you to join us for an amazing day!
