Asheville Earth Day is a day-long, family oriented event featuring a Kid's Village where children can interact and take part in a "recycled" art project, putting our general waste to better use. The Opening Ceremony will feature a kid's march led by our Earth Day emcee, and games and activities are welcome in the event field all day. Asheville Earth Day will also feature environmentally conscious businesses and organizations from around our region represented in our Eco-Village to educate the public on how they too can be active in protecting our earth.
The Asheville Earth Day again will include local food from participating vendors, and local beer for sale from some of our very own Asheville breweries, Asheville Brewing Company and Pisgah Brewing. The event is free to the public, and will run from 11a.m.-10p.m. The Official Earth Day After-Parties are set to take place, members of Acoustic Syndicate and Pond Farm Pickers will lead an All-Star jam at Stella Blue, and The New Mastersounds will lead a funk extravaganza at Club 828. More event information and details about the VIP ticket experience can be found at avlearthday.org.
