Celebrate Earth Day
Sunday, April 28th at the Oxbow Commons
Come join in the festivities at this year’s Earth Day Celebration on Sunday, April 28! This event brings the community together to celebrate and learn about our local environment.
Bring the family to learn more about alternative energy, supporting local agriculture, watershed health, pollution prevention, conservation, local stewardship opportunities, and much more. Hands-on educational activities, crafts, games, live music, and amazing dancers will keep the whole family entertained.
And to top it all off, BottleRock Napa Valley is generously providing a fabulous lineup of musical acts beginning with Jes Frances at 11:30 am, Alana Sweetwater at 1 pm, and then wrapping up the festival with Royal Jelly Jive at 3 pm. A couple of the bands you’ll even find at this year’s BottleRock! Don’t miss out. Come join the fun at the Oxbow Commons beside the Napa River from 11 am to 4 pm!
Earth Day Napa is excited to also be part of the first-ever international Drive Electric Earth Day. Come learn about the environmental and cost saving benefits of electric vehicles!
In addition to the live music, fun activities, and exhibitors—enjoy some delicious local food, beer, and wine! 100% of proceeds from beverage sales at Earth Day funds the Field Trip Bus Grant program run by the Environmental Education Coalition of Napa County (EECNC), the event host. These field trips allow Napa County students to visit sites such as Skyline Park, Connolly Ranch, Carolyn Parr Nature Center, and Bothe State Park—where they can gain an appreciation of our local environment. Proceeds from beverage sales also support the Darcy Aston Environmental Advocacy Scholarship, awarded to local high school students planning to pursue careers in the environmental sciences.
We encourage attendees to help celebrate the Earth by riding a bike to the event, where Napa County Bicycle Coalition will offer free valet bike parking! To help achieve the goal of being a zero-waste event, attendees are also encouraged to bring their own water bottle and stop by the “Water Bar” filling station.
Want to lend a hand for the Earth before the Earth Day Celebration? Take part in the Earth Day Cleanup! Throw on some gloves, grab a bucket, and join the Napa County Resource Conservation District at several sites throughout downtown Napa and beyond to pick up litter from our creeks and river. The cleanup runs from 9 am to 11 am. Visit naparcd.org for more information.
Sustaining sponsors of the Earth Day celebration are BottleRock Napa Valley and Napa Green Certified Land and Winery Programs. For a complete list of additional sponsors, exhibitors, food and beverage vendors, and entertainment—or to learn how to participate in this year’s Earth Day Celebration.
