Anticipation is growing for the 2019 St. Louis Earth Day Festival. This will be the most spectacular year yet, as it is the 30th anniversary celebrating in St. Louis! The Festival will take place on the Muny grounds in Forest Park on April 27th and 28th, from 11 am to 5 pm. This event is dog-friendly, so don’t forget to bring your fur baby.
This two-day event has attracted over 62,000 attendees, with 250 vendors, local musical acts, Green Dining Alliance-certified Foods Trucks and booths, and hands-on activities for the kids. It is a fun opportunity for you and your family to celebrate Earth Day in St. Louis’s breathtaking Forest Park. You’re even invited to enjoy free yoga where you can center your body and mind.
Attendees are also encouraged to participate in the Earth Day Challenge, which is comprised of three parts:
1. Always carry a reusable bag and a refillable water bottle with you to avoid using disposables.
2. Use alternative transportation as often as possible.
3. Incorporate more plant-based meals into your diet.
Those who visit the Earth Day Challenge booth and show that they have completed at least two of the three components for the weekend will be able to select a prize of their choice. Earthday365 encourages you to incorporate these three steps into your daily lifestyle, as they can drastically reduce your personal impact on the environment.
St. Louis Earth Day Festival is hosted by the environmental non-profit earthday 365, previously known a St. Louis Earth Day. Throughout the year you will see their two programs, Green Dining Alliance and Recycling on the Go, promoting sustainability around town. During the month of April enjoy the St. Louis Earth Day Film Series and annual Recycling Extravaganza. Earthday365 takes pride in their determined inevitability to empower communities to create and celebrate a greener St. Louis every day.
