Earth Day Coalition presents EarthFest 2012 and the Walk for the Earth on Sunday, April 22nd from 10am-5pm at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. EarthFest is Ohio’s largest environmental education event and the longest running Earth Day celebration in the nation. In partnership with the Sustainable Cleveland 2019 initiative, we will be celebrating the “Year of Local and Sustainable Food.” The new local and sustainable food exhibit area will feature a 72’ x 20’ hoop house with exhibits that include composting, rain gardens, urban farms, as well as businesses and restaurants that contribute to Cleveland’s growing local food economy. Additional exhibit areas will include innovations in the non-profit sector, family fun activities, clean transportation, health and fitness, environmental science, green home improvement, and all day entertainment. Kick-off of EarthFest activities begins at 9am with the annual Walk for the Earth. Registered participants of the Walk for the Earth receive free admission to EarthFest, are eligible for prizes and are invited to enjoy refreshments in the Walk reception tent. Regular zoo admission includes all zoo exhibits and EarthFest activities. Free admission will be given to registered Walk for the Earth participants and to those who ride the free shuttle bus from Cleveland Public Square to EarthFest.
