Earth Day Fair & Parade
April 20, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Join us for Central Oregon’s annual Earth Day Fair & Parade – a colorful celebration of the natural world and our place within it.
Our day of festivities kicks off with a colorful parade. Costumes encouraged for people of all ages! Dress as your favorite plant or animal. The parade will be led by B Side Brass Band and three beautiful Earth Guardians, created by local artist Teafly Peterson.
Next up is a street fair on Kansas Avenue featuring live music from Maxwell Friedman Group and a variety of local businesses, nonprofits, and food carts. The Kid’s Zone on Troy Field and our own Kansas Ave. Learning Garden will provide interactive, family-friendly activities. We’re also working up an opportunity for electric vehicle test drives – stay tuned!
> Big thanks to our Presenting Sponsor, Strictly Organic Coffee Co. We are so grateful that they continue to support this event year after year. Grab a cup of organic coffee or delicious hot cocoa during the fair!
> Another big thanks to local artist Megan Marie Myers Art for creating this year’s original Earth Day artwork, which you’re sure to see all around town! Her design is a beautiful interpretation of the interconnectedness of humans and the natural world.
**VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: We’re looking for volunteers who can set up and monitor the parade route, ensure zero waste efforts, and guide our Earth Guardian puppets. This is a really fun event and a great way to get involved in our community! Learn more and sign up for a shift here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0b48afae2ba4fa7-earth1
