Celebrating 10 years of promoting environmental sustainability, the City of Oceanside’s annual “Earth Festival” returns April 27, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., in downtown Oceanside at Pier View Way and Tremont Street. It is the largest Earth Day festival in North County and a staple Oceanside event. Themes this year will focus on a sustainable food system, zero waste, water conservation, watershed protection, and climate action.
The Earth Festival offers participants the opportunity to explore more than 100 booths and vendors to learn ways to increase sustainability efforts, peruse the vintage market to find upcycled items from environmentally conscious businesses, discover and taste Oceanside’s local food, and enjoy live local bands with music from our radio partner Jesse Lozano with Star 94.1 FM. Kids can do arts and crafts, explore a mini recycling truck, and learn how to save water, recycle and become a steward of the great outdoors at the Kids-Eco Zone.
Event highlights include:
“This year’s ‘Earth Festival’ marks an important milestone for Oceanside’s collective sustainability efforts over the past 10 years,” said Colleen Foster, Environmental Officer, Solid Waste and Recycling, City of Oceanside. “Through collaboration and partnerships with the community, we’ve made a significant impact, protecting and preserving our natural resources, and we’re excited to build on that momentum with this annual event.”
