Overview

Earth Day Fresno is a local initiative of Earth Day that celebrates global environmentalism. This year, we are celebrating with the theme "The Face of Climate Change". Climate change can seem like a remote problem for our leaders, but the fact is that it’s already impacting real people, animals, and beloved places. 

Join us this year in Downtown Fresno on April 20, Saturday at the Fresno County Courthouse Plaza to celebrate Earth Day in our own way.  We've invited numerous exhibitors, vendors, and local organizations to partake in this event.

About Earth Day Movement

The first Earth Day, on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed.

Growing out of the first Earth Day, Earth Day Network (EDN) works with over 22,000 partners in 192 countries to broaden, diversify and mobilize the environmental movement. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.
