Sacramento Earth Day is all about building community and finding ways to help residents of the Greater Sacramento Region reduce our ecological footprint. Attend the festival for the opportunity to learn about a vast array of methods to live more sustainably. Around 150 organizations and businesses will be exhibiting a multitude of practical information, goods and services that cultivate a healthier, greener way of living. You’ll also find a variety of fun activities to enjoy for the whole family, including live music, interactive educational games and a kids’ area. There will be several food vendors serving a range of plant-based (vegan) cuisine options. We’ll also have electric vehicles to check out, ask questions about, ride in or test drive! Featuring local art, environmentally-protective products and even valet parking for your bicycle! This is the largest Earth Day celebration in the Sacramento region. And admission is free!
Sacramento Earth Day is hosted by the local nonprofit organization, the Environmental Council of Sacramento (ECOS). The mission of ECOS is to achieve regional and community sustainability and a healthy environment for existing and future residents. Sacramento Earth Day is the largest annual fundraiser for ECOS, so consider supporting our work by becoming a sponsor of this landmark event today! If you aren’t able to sponsor, help us recruit volunteers!

Attendees loved having a chance to experience the feel of an electric vehicle and we are happy this will be an activity of the day once again!
History of Earth Day
Kathy Reis started organizing Sacramento Earth Day events with volunteers in 1990 and onward. Prior to this, Earth Day events held in Davis were attended by Sacramento and Davis residents. The Sierra Club took over the management of the main Sacramento Earth Day in 2000. The Environmental Council of Sacramento (ECOS) was a co-host with the Sierra Club until ECOS became the official organizer of Sacramento Earth Day in 2006.
