Earth Day Festival this Sunday will promote "Caring for our Climate"

Stockton Earth Day celebration returns to Victory Park on Sunday, April 24th

Event date: 4/24/2016 6:00 PM - 11:00 PM Export event

Stockton's Earth Day Festival has a long history of helping people recognize the importance of caring for our earth and natural resources.  This year's popular community event will be held April 24th at Victory Park (Behind Haggin Museum) from 11am to 4pm. With thousands of attendees and hundreds of volunteers, the event has something for everyone.  Close to 10,000+ people attend this event annually.

Through educational programs and other activities, the all-volunteer Earth Day Festival Organizing Committee has helped share this vision with thousands of people each year. The festival has grown over the years but it remains true to its mission of education, conservation and recycling. We are grateful for the volunteers, sponsors, schools and community organizations that help make this a remarkable annual event. The Festival is filled with fun and free activities!

This is the premiere environmental event in all of San Joaquin County, and as always, the focus of the day long festival is to educate you about taking care of our natural resources - the earth, air and water. With global warming, conservation and other environmental issues taking a spotlight in the world these days, we expect a crowd hungry and eager to learn how to take care of their environment. It is a fun day for families,and best of all, admission is free.

The Festival will have dozens of informative, interactive booths, displays and exhibits, plus there will be plenty of great food and exotic crafts. Local area schools will be teaching you how to take better care of our earth with a variety of hands-on activities, and environmental organizations will educate you about the important issues that impact you and how you can make a difference. Community agencies will help you live a healthier, more positive life, and green businesses will assist you in making changes to your home and workplace. Over 100 vendors will border the oak trees and cross the grass field at Victory Park, making this Earth Day Festival the biggest ever.

Bike riding to the event is encouraged. Or participate as a drummer in the Drum Circle that traditionally closes the Festival on a percussive high note. Make it your annual renewal of your commitment to make a global difference.
