St. Louis Continues to Celebrate 50th Earth Day Anniversary

Earth Day 365

Earth Day Half Birthday Moving Online

Executive Director Dr. Jess Watson announces that earthday365’s planned Earth Day Half Birthday on October 18th in Tower Grove Park will be replaced by a virtual festival and Green Curbside Hop. 

In the best interest of public health, earthday365 is unable to host an outdoor St. Louis Earth Day Festival in Tower Grove Park as planned on October 18th. The festival has instead been modified into two new events.

earthday365 has instead planned a unique Green Curbside Hop on October 15th, which combines a socially distanced treasure hunt through the streets of Maplewood for delectable green dining treats with a Festival Gift Bag full of items from a wide variety of St. Louis Earth Day Festival vendors. The event will provide a connection to the Festival experience in a fun and safe way that supports the St. Louis sustainability community. More information on this event is available at https://earthday-365.org/green-curbside-hop/

The Virtual Earth Day Half Birthday Festival will also be revamped, and will include live events with a focused line-up of Environmental Changemakers, while incorporating more video and interactive elements (including a virtual scavenger hunt) into our Festival Experience Areas. 

Virtual Earth Day Half Birthday sponsors include: Centene, Subaru, Missouri American Water, St. Louis-Jefferson Solid Waste Management District, Department of Natural Resources, Great Rivers Greenway, MSD Project Clear, Renewal by Andersen, Metro Lighting, RideFinders, Clean Air Lawn Care, and FIFCO.

Green Curbside Hop participating restaurants include Pie Oh My!, Foundation Grounds, Kakao Chocolate, The Blue Duck, Bolyards, Living Room, and The Post.
