The Columbia Area Earth Day Festival is happening Sunday, April 22, 2012
April is a very exciting month. The whole world seems to be in bloom, all at once, and Earth Day is rapidly approaching.
We invite all of you to plan to attend the Columbia Area Earth Day Festival from noon to 7 p.m. on Sunday, April 22 (rain date April 29). If you explore this site, using the menu at your left you will find out all the details about this year’s festival.
The Schedule page will let you know who’s performing, and at approximately what time.
You can learn who will be exhibiting this year on Eco Ave and find links to all these organizations, agencies and businesses. You can likewise find the list of Earth Day Coalition member groups, and link to info about these organizations on the Members page.
Need a map, or want to find out about parking, we’ve got a page for that too. And, if you haven’t gotten your booth yet, you still can sign up (with a $10 late fee) right through 5 p.m., Thursday, April 19.
And, if you’d like to help as a volunteer we’d still love to have your help. Need to contact us? Just check the appropriate links.

We also encourage you to help us get the word out regarding Earth Day. You can do this by inviting friends on Facebook. We’ve also posted PDFs of flyers for posting on bulletin boards and handouts to share at events, at work, at your house of worship, etc. Just click the Flyers & Handouts link.
Earth Day is a wonderful, grassroots community event. It is put together each year primarily by volunteers and on a shoestring budget. Still, hundreds of booths are set up, and many thousands of people attend. There’s something magical about a non-corporate, community-initiated, event like this.
Together, we make Earth Day happen. We have one Earth to live on. One Earth to share. One Earth to care for. Join us in celebrating the Earth and renewing our commitment to creating a workable, just and sustainable future for all.
See you at Earth Day!
Thanks, everyone, for your interest, support and participation.
