It all began 45 years ago in San Francisco and now, more than 192 countries join in the celebration of Earth Day! It’s the largest secular holiday in the world and is celebrated by many from peacemakers to spring enthusiasts. Going to an Earth Day event can be a wonderful experience if only to get outside and appreciate nature. This year, various locations around the U.S. are getting into the earthy spirit, so we are highlighting three epic Earth Day festivals.
Earth Day Festival San Francisco
(San Francisco, CA)
If you really want to embrace Earth Day and get in touch with nature, you must go straight to the source: San Francisco! Anyone who knows a thing about Earth Day knows that San Francisco is the mother of macrocosms when it comes to parties. With gardening workshops, organic food vendors and planet dancing you might want to brace yourself for exciting and new experiences!
