More about Earthfest
Over the past 18 years, EarthFest has become East Tennessee’s premier Earth Day event. And it’s not simply a celebration of the planet. From an interactive educational scavenger hunt and live local bands to kid-friendly activities, EarthFest has something for everyone.
Those who’ve attended in the past will notice the change in venue. The annual festival has previously been held at The Cove at Concord Park, Pellissippi State’s Hardin Valley campus and most recently at the World’s Fair Park. EarthFest is excited to celebrate Earth Day at the Knoxville Botanical Garden, which offers plenty of green space, views of the mountains and access to public transportation.
During the event, attendees can learn about sustainable living while enjoying environmental exhibits and attractions, an interactive educational scavenger hunt, and a youth area with free activities for kids of all ages.
