Andy Pollack of New Farm Invites everyone to "Celebrate Earth Day ... And Have Fun!"
Earth Day SF is a Festival …
Gather with us on April 22, 2023, for Earth Day SF, as this is your launching pad for change. In our Education Zone, we’ll have dynamic speakers, green non-profits, and a selection of exhibitors and sponsors who focus on sustainability. View transit options in our Green Mobility Zone. We’ll have live music, a vegan chef’s showcase, an interactive art wall, and kid’s activities.
Earth Day SF is about inspiration …
In our backyards, in our state, and around the world, long-held and outdated systems are perpetuating the dependance on fossil fuel, and dependance on corporations that put profit before people. Clean air, water, soil, and food is our fundamental right.
Make this your day for a celebration of Mother Earth, for gathering as eco-activists and growing our environmental awareness. And having fun in the process!
Earth Day San Francisco will be celebrated at the County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park.
The San Francisco County Fair Building is at 9th Ave and Lincoln Way. It has been the location for the Annual Fungus Festival, The World Veg Fest, San Francisco Zine Fest, and the San Francisco Summer Resource Fair for Kids, among other festivals. It is a mid-century modern building built in 1961 and was renamed the County Fair Building in the 1980s.
History of Earth Day
In 1969, Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson had the idea for Earth Day while reading about the student led anti-war movement. The day dedicated to protecting and preserving “Mother Earth” was April 22, 1970, and is credited as launching the modern environmental movement.
The inaugural Earth Day was so successful that both political parties embraced environmental awareness at the time. The Endangered Species Act, the National Environment Policy Act, the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts all have their roots in the first Earth Day.
Today, Earth Day has enlisted 22,000 partners in 190 countries to mobilize the environmental movement. Now over 1 billion people participate in Earth Day making it the world’s largest civic observance.
