Earth Day Festival

Earth Day Festival 2020 Cancelled

Friends, as you may have surmised, due to the outbreak of Covid-19 the 2020 Ann Arbor Earth Day Festival scheduled for April 19, 2020 at Gallup Park has been canceled.  We fully intend to plan for the Festival in spring 2021 and use that occasion to celebrate the 50-year Anniversary Plus One of the original Earth Day, held here in Ann Arbor on April 22, 1970.
Though we will not celebrate together this year we encourage you to celebrate in your own way and we offer this resource of what individuals can do to make Earth Day every day.

About the Festival

The Ann Arbor Earth Day Festival is an annual celebration coordinated by the Ann Arbor Earth Day Festival Planning Committee, a coalition of local environmental nonprofits and agencies, and held at Gallup Park.


This free, family-friendly event features displays from 40 local environmental, nonprofit, and governmental organizations; live animal demonstrations; hands-on activities; live entertainment; green building & commuting technologies; energy topics; water awareness; sustainable agriculture; and more.


In the true spirit of Earth Day, this festival will again be a Zero Waste event, with the help from Recycle Ann Arbor. Visitors can help keep up the average of 90% waste diverted from landfills during the Earth Day Event by bringing their reusable water bottle, and putting their waste in the right receptacles.


Ann Arbor’s Earth Day Festival is a free event thanks to local donors and sponsors!
