Kids and adults of all ages can celebrate Mother Earth during the 16th Annual Nashville Earth Day Festival. It takes place on Saturday, April 22 at Centennial Park. The free fun takes place from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.  Children’s activities are on tap at many of the exhibitor booths. New for kids this year is a hands-on Kidsville Project in which children will create a Parthenon model from recycled materials.

Earth Day Fest Features

The festival's feature exhibits and children's activities all aim at educating families about protecting our environment and living green. There will be more than 100 family-friendly booths representing community groups, environmental organizations and government agencies. “We hope all Nashvillians will come out and join us for Earth Day this year,” says Metro Public Works Director Mark Sturtevant. “This event continues to raise awareness of important environmental issues while also providing a fun day for the community to come together. From children’s activities, a great lineup of music and all of our partners and exhibitors, this is a day not to miss,” he adds. Other Earth Day Festival attractions include a Green Market where you can buy locally grown produce and locally made products. Dads will enjoy chilling out in the beer garden featuring local brews. Got household goods to recycle? Bring them to the drop-off area. You can also bring clothing, shoes and books to donate to Goodwill.
