Now in its tenth year, the Earth Day Festival is a unique event that focuses on keeping ourselves and our world healthy. The planning committee strives to create a fun and entertaining atmosphere where visitors connect with environmental and health-related resources, plus learn skills or gain knowledge that enables and inspires action for green, healthy living.
We thank the 90+ exhibitors that take part in the event for being our partners in achieving this mission. Exhibitors are encouraged to provide hands-on learning activities whenever possible, and to share with visitors how their products or services benefit the health of people and the planet.
A diverse demographic ranging in age and interest attend this free event. Many come as a family or with a group of friends. Runners and supporters of the Earth Day Challenge ½ Marathon & 4-mile Run/Walk, which takes place prior to the Festival, also stay to enjoy the event. Last year saw a total of 2,500+ attendees.
