St. Louis Earth Day Festival

An Earth Day celebration that is uniquely St. Louis!

April 22 and 23

New in 2017 – a 2-day event!

Join in this community tradition to learn about sustainable products and services offered by local businesses and organizations, meet area non-profits that share Earth Day values, catch local musical acts and performance art, participate in a number of hands-on educational activities, and enjoy diverse cuisine featuring local, organic, vegetarian, and vegan options. The 2017 Festival will include special features, like yoga classes all day for both adults and children, a rock climbing wall, a pet adoption area, and many more activities for “children” of all ages. Event entry is free; the Earth Day Festival is a welcoming place where all are invited for celebration and learning.
