Welcome to Good Neighbors Group’s Earth Day Festival in Severna Park! We are so excited to be at the Earleigh Heights Volunteer Fire Company again this year!! 

For over 20 years we’ve been bringing together dozens of organizations, vendors and school groups to create this fun, meaningful event that engages people and challenges them to learn something new about the world we live in and care of the community and ourselves.  

With so many great opportunities to learn, engage with knowledgeable people, have fun, listen to music and eat great food, we hope this one day event will inspire people all year long.

Exhibitors include environmental organizations, animal welfare organizations, recycling and composting exhibitors, alternative energy specialists, and physical and mental wellness providers. Come explore our eco-marketplace with plants,  handmade and up-cycled offerings. 

We’ll once again host our Good Neighbors Depot to unload unwanted items with a mind toward sustainability. We’ll have opportunities to recycle, upcycle and donate what you no longer need while helping others and the planet.

The following is a list of items we will re-home or dispose of at the event this year. We don’t expect you to go shopping for the items below. We hope that if you have some of these items taking up space in your home, business or life, you can take advantage of this one-day opportunity to clear some space while learning about some great organizations and programs that can help.
