A day of celebration that inspires people of all ages to take action for a healthy and sustainable Mother Earth. This is FREE family event.
On April 20th people from Twin Cities communities will laugh and learn from over 100 informative and entertaining exhibitors in the rich and historic cultural diversity of Saint Paul’s West Side neighborhood. Children, youth and adults will have opportunities to get out and move around with balanced fitness and wellness activities, take time out to reconnect with the Earth, and enjoy our tasty “green cuisine” foods that pack flavor without the plastic!
There is something for everyone to learn and enjoy at Mother Earth Fest 2013!
