Valencia Street, 19th-21st Street



Join us for the 52nd Anniversary of Earth Day

Earth Day SF is about  …
  • Celebrating the amazing resiliency of our planet and its inhabitants while appreciating the accomplishments of global citizen-activists since it began in 1970
  • Co-creating an action plan for addressing the environmental crisis
  • Inspiring each other to push back on the toxic priorities of big oil, big banks and big government and saying No to dwindling oversight on environmental decimation
  • Addressing the ongoing lack of meaningful and urgent policy decisions at global summits that don’t walk the talk about climate science
In our backyards, in our state and around the world, long-held and outdated systems are perpetuating dependance on fossil fuel, and dependance on corporations that put profit before people. Clean air, water, soil, and food is our right.
Gather with us on Valencia Street at Earth Day SF, as this is your launch pad for a renewed drive for change. Experience inspiration and get information in our Activism Zone, with a mix of enviro-speakers, non-profits, and a selection of vendors who focus on sustainability.  We’ll have live music, a vegan chef’s showcase, and kid’s activities. Make this your day for a celebration of Mother Earth, for building your environmental awareness and enjoying neighborhood fun.

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.
