Event Details

Green Ossining’s 12th Annual Earth Day Festival expects to return to its live-and-in-person format! Join the Greater Ossining community in our annual celebration of Earth Day. Bring family and friends. Learn how to live a more sustainable life, visit artisan vendors, and enjoy food and live music on the banks of the Hudson River.
As Westchester County’s largest community-run earth day festival– enjoying more than 4,000 attendees in the past and expecting some 100+ vendors – the Festival has grown from 300 attendees and 20 vendors in our first year and attracts visitors from as far south as Brooklyn to counties surrounding and north of Westchester.
The Festival offers hands-on activities and educational opportunities for everyone, as well as full day of great live music and entertainment aiming to make it our best Earth Day celebration yet.
As we honor the 52nd anniversary of Earth Day, we remain keenly aware of the great challenges affecting our natural environment, our planet, and life as we know it. We are also of the belief that there is much we can each personally do to affect positive change through the everyday choices we each have the power to make. You’ll find many things you love about festivals – food, music, artisans, activities – but we hope you’ll also join us in our recognition of the urgency to action that is needed.
As well, we encourage you to show us what matters to you by bringing posters or signs that amplify your voice about environmental issues, reflecting your environmental concerns, thoughts on policy changes needed, and/or social justice impacts that you want to remind people of as a result of our changing climate.
