Celebrate Earth Day Saturday at EarthFest

Rain or shine, the 19th annual EarthFest will be held on Saturday, April 28 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum, 2743 Wimpole Ave. This year’s theme is Make Your Mark featuring the local “makers community” and, as always, it’s a free, zero-waste event for the whole family.

During the event, attendees can learn about sustainable living while enjoying environmental exhibits and attractions, an interactive education expedition, keynote speakers, and a youth area with free activities for kids of all ages.

EarthFest is excited to celebrate Earth Day at the same venue as last year, the Knoxville Botanical Gardens, which offers plenty of green space, views of the mountains and access to public transportation.

Onsite events and activities include:

  • Keynote Speakers whose topics include Microplastics, Bats, Energy, and Plants
  • Exhibits hosted by local environmentally-friendly businesses, organizations and non-profits, many with live demonstrations
