Severna Park Earth Day Festival
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and its related closures and distancing guidelines, we are forced to cancel the on-site Earth Day Festival. However, we welcome you to be part of our first VIRTUAL EARTH DAY FESTIVAL! Please check back here for our calendar of April activities leading up to the festival’s scheduled date of April 25th.
The Severna Park Earth Day Festival is in its 18th year! Each year, more than 30 organizations and vendors join together to create this wonderful event that aims to educate and engage the community in a fun and meaningful way. Booths feature interactive activities for children of all ages, as well as materials and information for home owners striving to increase their understanding and make eco-friendly improvements in their homes.
This year, our theme is 20/20 Vision for a Healthier World: Reduce, Reuse, Refresh. Improving our environment is about much more than recycling. It is about reducing what we have, consuming less and engaging more. Local activities like the Severna Park Earth Day Festival are a perfect way for the community to join together and improve our environment and ourselves! How will you apply the “R’s” to your life? Join us at the Earth Day Festival – and who knows what you will learn and be inspired to do to create a positive change for you, your family, your home, our community!
Go Green, Severna Park!
Once again, ALL Severna Park public schools will participate – each with a booth to inform and entertain. Environmental organizations and service providers, animals, recycling, composting, solar – Going Green has never been easier or more enjoyable!
The Festival features an eco-marketplace with handmade, up-cycled, recycled and fair trade offerings from clothing jewelry and plants, to home and gift items.
The Festival has expanded its offerings so that we work toward improving the health of our community environment – and that means a focus on the physical and mental health of our community members: physical well-being, nutrition, counseling and so much more. There is truly something for everyone!
From its beginnings at St. Martin’s in the Field, to its move to Severna Park Middle School 2011-2016, the Severna Park Earth Day Festival continues to grow and is now held at Severna Park High School. Sponsored by Good Neighbors Group and with senior Project Mangers from the Severna Park High School Leadership Program, the Festival is an enjoyable and important community tradition! Be a part of it!
