The largest Earth Day celebration in South County is scheduled to take place on April 15 at Bayfront Park for a free, family-friendly event that aims to build awareness about sustainability and our impact on the earth. 

The event will take place on April 15 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Bayfront Park, located at 980 Maring Way in Chula Vista. There will be fun interactive activities for families to enjoy. 

South Bay Earth Day is an inclusive event that provides a space for all to learn how to live an environmentally-friendly lifestyle that is mutually beneficial for you and Mother Earth. The event will observe zero-waste practices followed by over 50 green vendors, a showcase of eco-conscious products, programs, and hands-on green activities geared toward education, conservation, recycling, and sustainability.

According to the city, the event is curated for both those already living an eco-friendly lifestyle, and for newcomers looking for a starting point to go green, the event includes workshops such as Zero-Waste Living, Food Waste Tips and Tricks, Ask the Recycler, and Electrifying Your Home.

Activities include: 

Fix-it-Clinic. Have something that needs fixing – small electronics, sewing, mechanical, or otherwise? Bring it to the Fix-it-Clinic where one of our experts will help you diagnose and fix the problem.

Tie Dye Workshop. Bring plain, light-colored shirts, shorts, socks, or a sheet and we’ll show you how to make them have character and color with tie-dye workshops.

Free Food Waste Kitchen Caddy. Make food waste collection easy – stop by and pick up a free food waste collection caddy for your kitchen countertop while supplies last.

Free Compost Giveaway. Replenish the soil health of your yard and garden. Free compost will be available for residents to pick up. Load your own (bring a bucket or a bag; supplies are limited).
