12th Annual Earth Day Celebration
Locally Is Globally
Saturday, April 23, 2016
The Town of Springdale in cooperation with Zion National Park will celebrate the 12th Annual Zion Canyon Earth Day in Springdale on Saturday April 23, 2016. This annual event draws 1000 or more visitors to help celebrate our beautiful home.
The festival continues to be a sustainablility-focused, educational event through recycling, using solar power, adding engaging educational booths, and encouraging art vendors to use recycled or reusable materials.
The event, including a silent auction, and beer & wine garden, takes place on the lawn of the Bit & Spur Restaurant at 1212 Zion Park Boulevard from 11:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.
Live solar powdered music will be accompanied by art and food vendors, activities and demonstrations about, alternative energy, native plants, solar ovens, environmental art and sustainable products. Kids can participate in activities at the Kids Zone.
The Earth Day Committee believes that educational events like Earth Day inform the public about the importance of sustainability and alternative energy sources. The Town of Springdale is continuing its efforts to offset the energy used in public facilities to solar power and currently has 94.6 kW solar capacity installed. Additionally, private residents collectively have 73.4 kW installed. The Town of Springdale has been recognized as an EPA Green Power Community since 2008.
