Central Florida Earth Day!

Central Florida Earth Day is back--bigger and better than ever! It will be held on Saturday, April 20, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at beautiful Lake Eola Park in Orlando. Please join us at the largest and most prestigious Earth Day event in Central Florida.

The event will include healthy living and eco-friendly exhibitors, speakers, and presentations; non-profits; fun and games for kids; dog and cat adoptions; restaurant booths; environmental and humane education; artist and craft corners; and live music and entertainment. Central Florida Earth Day will draw both committed environmentalists and those who want to learn more about how to protect our health, the planet, and its inhabitants. You can promote your business or group to thousands of people who want to learn more about environmentalism and the varied products and services that support an eco-friendly and a veg-friendly way of life. All money raised will be used for local environmental education and outreach.

For more information, visit www.CFEarthDay.org. This website will be continually updated as additional sponsors, vendors, restaurants, speakers, musicians, etc. are added. Please check back often for all the exciting changes! If you are interested in being a vendor, please go the Vendor Packet page. If you are interested in being a volunteer, please go to the Volunteer page.

Please also join us for other Earth Week activities to be announced. See you at Central Florida Earth Day 2013!

    Another great event, great job Larry and all the planners. I thought the threat of rain kept some away in the early hours but then it got more crowded. And were there less vendors than other years? Great to speak to so many like-minded people.

      Thanks, Rich. We have a lot of luck with weather. Not sure how you were counting vendors. It was by far our biggest event ever: 175 vendors as compared to 135 last year.

    • Rich G.

      did not count vendors, just a observation. I think because the vendors were spread out more and not in that big lawn area across from Panera it seemed as such. I liked it much better this way than other years. Do not remember if I went last year.
