St. Louis Earth Day Festival
An Earth Day celebration that is uniquely St. Louis!
ST. LOUIS EARTH DAY FESTIVAL
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. This year’s event will include special features, like yoga classes all day for both adults and children, a rock climbing wall, and a Metro Bus mural painting. The theme of the festival is a message of inclusion “Earth Day Every Day…for Everyone!” Event entry is free; the Earth Day Festival is a welcoming place where all are invited for celebration and learning.

EARTH DAY EVE
Start the celebration early – join us on Saturday afternoon at Earth Day Eve, a fundraiser to support the St. Louis Earth Day organization. This family-friendly event will be held on the Festival grounds, 4 pm to 7 pm, on Theatre Drive in the Earth Day Café. All are welcome to enjoy a selection of Festival food and kick back to the music of Jake’s Leg, who performed 26 years ago at the very first St. Louis Earth Day celebration. Face painting and t-shirt tie-dying, along with a silent auction and 50/50 raffle will be featured activities available at the event, for a nominal donation. Tickets are available online; all proceeds benefit the year-round programming of St. Louis Earth Day.
