Local events

Earth Day Spokane

Amazing local music, street performers, spoken word, short community leader speeches, great local food, children’s activities, bountiful opportunities to learn about environmental organizations in the area and the always popular Procession of the Species parade led by Michael Moon Bear.

This is a free event and family-focused, so plan to spend your Saturday celebrating Mother Earth
with the whole family. This year’s event strives to honor the legacy of past Earth Day events, while taking very seriously the need for a radical shift to self-responsibility to help solve some of our planet’s main concerns. While street parking is available, with Saturday meter rates applying, all attendees are encouraged to commute via mass transit or alternative transportation. Earth Day Spokane will feature ample bicycle parking, and bus routes and information can be found at www.spokanetransit.com
Earth Day Spokane is striving this year to be a near zero-waste event, with plenty of volunteers on
hand to assist in recycling and composting collection.
