Reno's Earth Day 2013 Celebration at Idlewild Park will take place on April 21st, 2013. This years event is planned to be bigger and better than the last. With a 3 point theme inspired by the Recycling symbol focusing on three major areas of Earth Day: The Natural World, Many Cultures and Green Technologies. We have performance groups, vendors, educational booth commitments and special activities planned FREE for the public as well as fundraising activities planned to raise funds for charities within each of the 3 subject themes. 

We have several themed areas this year including “Animalia”; a new pet friendly zone with all sorts of animal related booths and a Pet Adoption Showcase and Pet Fashion Show! “The Garden” featuring a local Farmer’s Market and other natural world exhibits. The new “Earth Innovations” segment which includes a science fair this year with all local high schools invited to participate. An “Artists’ Grove” that will feature local artists of all kinds, “The Conservation Zone” that will be a quieter area with educational and kids booths and “The Future of Transportation” with a showcase of alternative fuel vehicles and test drives. There is no parking within the park, but there is FREE PARKING at Reno High School, just a block away with Bike Taxi’s to drop you off at the Future of Transportation! 

This is a festival for all senses with music from around the world, sights to fascinate and inspire, tastes and smells from a variety of food selections and many hands-on activities. There will be live entertainment all day long from local bands, performance groups, and many more! You will get the chance to learn about and see live animals throughout the event, so please be advised that Pets Are Not Allowed in certain areas of the event. We will have a pet friendly area as well as pet sitting facilities for you to drop off your furry friends while you enjoy the rest of the event. Commemorate the day and event with a special Earth Day Reno 2013 T-shirt or wares from the many artistic and innovative shops and performance groups.
