More about Earthfest
Over the past 17 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 and a fuel-efficient car showcase, EarthFest has something for everyone.
During a zero-waste event, there are no trash cans. Instead, waste stations located throughout the festival offer recycling and composting opportunities for everything distributed at the event. In order to minimize waste, exhibitors and food vendors agree to control the types of materials they sell or distribute. Individually-wrapped items are prohibited and water stations are available to refill bottles.
In addition to four live bands, there'll be free entertainment and activities for kids of all ages in the interactive youth learning area. Also be sure to complete a scavenger hunt card while at the event. Prizes will be given away every hour.
