Sacramento Earth Day is all about building community and finding ways to help residents of the Greater Sacramento Region reduce our ecological footprint. Attend the festival for the opportunity to learn about a vast array of methods to live more sustainably. Around 150 organizations and businesses will be exhibiting a multitude of practical information, goods and services that cultivate a healthier, greener way of living.
You’ll also find a variety of fun activities to enjoy for the whole family, including live music, interactive educational games and a kids’ area. There will be several food vendors serving a range of plant-based (vegan) cuisine options. We’ll also have electric vehicles to check out, ask questions about, ride in or test drive!
Featuring local art, environmentally-protective products and even valet parking for your bicycle! Admission is free and we see thousands of attendees throughout the day. This is the largest Earth Day celebration in the Sacramento region.
Sacramento Earth Day is hosted by the local nonprofit organization, the Environmental Council of Sacramento (ECOS). The mission of ECOS is to achieve regional and community sustainability and a healthy environment for existing and future residents. Sacramento Earth Day is the largest annual fundraiser for ECOS, so consider supporting our work by becoming a sponsor of this landmark event today!
The Electric Vehicle Association of Sacramento displays a variety of electric vehicles and answers any questions that you may have had about buying or owning an electric vehicle. We also have new electric vehicles available for test drives and passenger rides!
