Nashville Earth Day 2019
As a sure sign that summer is just around the corner in Music City, the Nashville Earth Day Festival returns to Centennial Park on Saturday, April 20, 2019. This free, family-friendly event, organized by the Nashville Parks Foundation and presented by Piedmont Natural Gas, is open to the public from 11am CT to 6pm CT.
Nashville’s Earth Day Festival will feature exhibits and hands-on activities aimed to educate visitors about protecting the environment and living green. With over one hundred family-friendly booths hosted by community groups, environmental organizations and government agencies, Earth Day is a fun festival for all ages.
“The 17th annual Nashville’s Earth Day Festival will once again highlight interactive, educational opportunities focused on caring for our planet and our community as well as providing fantastic, local entertainment.” said Brian Taylor, Chair of the Nashville Parks Foundation. “On behalf of the The Nashville Parks Foundation, we are honored to be the lead organizer of this city-wide signature event to embrace, enhance, and preserve our natural resources by supporting Metro Parks and its outstanding recreational programs.”
Festival highlights for 2019 include music from Nashville’s own Sam Bush Band and a kid’s music program hosted by Rock and Roll Playhouse aimed to inspire creativity in children through music and movement. Throughout the event guests can enjoy fare from local food trucks, products from the Green Market, and locally brewed beer and wine.
Guests of Nashville Earth Day are also encouraged to take advantage of the recycling and disposal drop-off opportunities which are available to drop off household goods including unused or expired pharmaceuticals at the Metro Nashville Police Department exhibit booth, and creative supplies such as paper, art and craft supplies, tools, office supplies, fabric and natural materials at the Turnip Green Creative Reuse.
