The 2017 Earth Day Indiana Festival will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2017, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Historic Military Park at White River State Park. Come to the festival for local food vendors, kid's activities, over 125 exhibitors, live music, 5K run/walk, and beer garden with Ash & Elm Cider Co. and Chilly Water Brewing Company. IUPUI has parking available for $6 in the surface lots closest to the park.
Better than driving downtown is to take IndyGo! Whether you plan to be on foot for the day or want to bring along your bike, IndyGo has you covered. If you bike and bus to Military Park we will watch your bike for free at our Pedal and Park area as you enjoy the festival or other downtown happenings. Just be sure to be back by 4pm.
The Festival Guide is available online! See who is going to exhibit, gander at the festival map, review all of the terrific sponsors that make the festival possible. See it as a pdf Here.
Back in 2017 is the Recycle Run 5K! Run or walk a 5K route that is mostly along the White River! The 5K begins (at noon) and finishes at Historic Military Park at White River State Park but the majority of the course will take you upstream and then downstream along the White River. WALK-UPS ARE WELCOME. CHECK-IN BEGINS AT 10AM ON APRIL 22. THERE IS NO PACKET PICK-UP DATE.
Visit Chilly Water Brewing Company starting on April 21 for a pint of Down to Earth Ale. One dollar from each pint sold will be donated to Earth Day Indiana!
