If you happen to see someone wearing a blue Festival shirt this weekend, chances are, they're a volunteer! Not only can you ask them where the Information Booth is and other important Festival landmarks, but give 'em a high five for the vital support they provide. Without them, the St. Louis Earth Day Festival would not be possible.
This Sunday is the 23rd annual St. Louis Earth Day Festival!
We’ve done it again! The St. Louis Earth Day staff, board members, committees and community partners have worked together to create another remarkable celebration that we hope you’ll enjoy. In addition to the fun of a festival, we look forward to showcasing the local programs, organizations and businesses that have made a commitment to honor the Earth and be leaders for our region in stewardship.
Make sure you seek out the many educational activities scattered throughout the Festival. While some are designed for kids – like puppet shows, storytelling and up-cycling activities — there are interactive exhibits for adults too — learn more about electric cars in the Transportation Neighborhood or how to reduce your household energy consumption through simple home improvements and energy efficient appliances at Ameren Missouri and EarthWays Center’s booths.
New this year, Chipotle hosts a giant cinema featuring short films about sustainable food and agriculture. Earth Day also welcomes a new presenting sponsor to the region — Nature’s Own. Stop by their tent for special giveaways and the opportunity to win a year’s supply of bread!
And, what would any Festival be without its food and entertainment? Explore great local talent on three stages with performances all day. You can eat both lunch and dinner, or graze on the delectable and diverse offerings at the Earth Day Café and Farmers Market, washing it down with a cold Schlafly draft or refreshing lemonade.
We bring all this to you with our impact on the environment at the forefront of considerations.Visit our website to learn more about how we consider sustainability throughout the planning process. We hope to leave a big impression in the minds of our visitors, while leaving behind only small tracks to show we’ve been here. We look forward to sharing all this with you on Sunday.
Name us Best Festival in St. Louis!
