Edmonton's Earth Day Festival

Spring is here, and we have the great pleasure in announcing the 21st Annual Edmonton’s Earth Day, Canada’s leading Environmental celebration.

Although International Earth Day is celebrated on the 22nd of April, each year Edmonton positions our event on the closest Sunday, to enable the most people possible to attend. This year we will be starting Earth Week off on the Sunday beforehand.

Therefore, this year’s event is to be held in a new location, in Fort Edmonton Park, in and around Blatchford Hangar on Sunday, April 18th, from noon to 6 pm.  Volunteers, societies, environmental and wholistic organizations throughout the city are busy preparing their displays, activities and workshops for what promises to be a wonderful event.
