2020 Earth Day Festival

Stockton and San Joaquin County will celebrate its 32nd Annual Earth Day Festival on Sunday, April 26, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Victory Park behind Haggin Museum.

“Climate Action Now – Vote Earth” is the theme of this area’s premier environmental event and will focus on educating local residents on pursuing activities that will help our planet overcome climate change. Over 70 vendors will participate, including some great healthy food fare. It is a fun day for kids and families, and admission is free.

Through an array of informative, interactive booths, demos, displays and exhibits, this annual Festival is a chance for local area schools, environmental organizations, community agencies and green businesses to come together to share ideas and discuss important environmental issues with area residents.

Warm-up for the day with stretching during a relaxing hour of Yoga on the park green starting at 9 a.m. Whether you are a beginner or a practiced yoga student, join us for a yoga session. Local cyclists, young and old, can peddle to the Festival and secure your bicycles in a safe bike corral staffed by the San Joaquin Bike Coalition as you enjoy the activities at the Festival.

Local Scientists and concerned citizens will “March for Science” at 10 a.m. at Victory Park. This walk will focus on the responsible application of science to government. A Parade will circle the park advocating to prevent changes to existing environmental policies that could cause negative effects to our planet.

Great Entertainment will be featured at the Festival starting at 11 a.m. A variety of local area bands and cultural groups will be there to captivate and delight attendees. An organic drum circle will close the day at 4 p.m. on a percussive note.

The Earth Day Festival is brought to you by the collaboration and partnership of the Peace & Justice Network, City of Stockton Solid Waste/Recycling and Water Conservation, Stockton Area Water Suppliers, San Joaquin County Registrar of Voters, San Joaquin County Office of Education, Bye Bye Mattress and local businesses.
