Earth Day Festival Celebrates 30th Anniversary Saturday

The Earth Day Indiana Festival will celebrate its 30th Anniversary in downtown Indianapolis Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

The festival was originally scheduled to take place in April but was postponed due to the COVID-19 crisis.

White River State Park Development Commission, Deputy Director Maggie Ranallo, said the festival will take place in Military Park to allow for optimal social distancing.

“We are really able to spread things out. The event organizer, food exhibitors, they’ve all been fantastic in following through on the new normal in regard to COVID-19," Ranallo said.

This free family-friendly event includes several exhibitors, live music, food trucks, a beer garden, the Recycle Run 5K run/walk event along the White River, and more. Nine13sports’ Kids Riding Bikes will be among those providing activities for kids. IndyGo and Pedal Park will offer free bike watching services for anyone who bikes or buses to the festival.

Ranallo says the park put a list of safety guidelines and protocols in place.Those can be reviewed at www.WhiteRiverStatePark.org.
