Event Description

Rogue Valley Earth Day 2017

Rogue Valley Earth Day is hours of family-friendly fun including hands-on kids activities, eco-friendly food vendors and Standing Stone brews on tap.

Dozens of exhibits inspiring environmental stewardship will range from electric cars and climate activism, to backyard habitats and water-wise landscaping, and regional organizations will deliver “Earth Day Shout Outs” that inspire our community to “Rise to the Challenge.”

This year’s live entertainment line-up is a celebration of culture, with Ashland Taiko Japanese drumming, Ballet Folklorico Mexican dance troupe, and Southern Oregon Scottish Bagpipes. Youthful talent includes performances by Rogue World Choristers, FlipSide tumbling arts, Creekside Strings fiddlers, and Helman Dragon Choir.

Admission is free and visitors are encouraged to bring their own reusable beverage container. The event takes place outdoors at ScienceWorks, 1500 E. Main Street, Ashland.

This year, we are raising awareness about actions each of us can take to “Power Down, Green Up and Shout Out.” We’ve teamed up with Geos Institute to help engage our community in the Ashland Climate Challenge, an ultra-local and fun way for individuals and businesses to reduce energy use and move to clean energy. All ages are invited to create positive change by Rising to the Challenge at home, school, work and play!

Rogue Valley Earth Day is a joyful, annual celebration for all ages to learn about environmental stewardship and build community in a fun and inspirational setting.

Established in 2001, this event has become a Rogue Valley tradition. It’s a forum for non-profits, businesses and governments to raise awareness, a venue for local musicians, artists and performers to share their talents, and an outlet for students to display their knowledge and creativity.

Outdoors at ScienceWorks Hands-on Museum
1500 E. Main Street, Ashland
Free Admission! Bring your friends!
