Each year in the spring, Forsyth Park at the heart of the historic district becomes the nucleus of the city’s green initiatives. It is a celebration of environmentally responsible living and business in coastal Georgia. The Savannah Earth Day Festival serves as an important opportunity for local government, businesses, non-profits, and community groups to connect with the public and each other. It is the City’s largest environmental outreach event of the year and the largest educational Earth Day event in the state of Georgia.
Take part in over a dozen free workshops and interactive demonstrations. Each workshop lasts about 30 minutes and covers a wide range of topics. View the schedule of confirmed workshops (with more to come!). We also encourage you to submit ideas for a workshop you’d like to see or conduct yourself.
Keep the kids busy with free art activities provided by local arts organizations. All supplies are provided free of charge and kids of all ages can take part anytime you stop by and take their creations home as a souvenir of the day.
Join in a tradition, since the very first Earth Day of 1970, in which two thousand colleges and universities, roughly ten thousand primary and secondary schools, and hundreds of communities across the United States participated.
Cycling plays an important role in sustainable transportation for our city. Join the Savannah Bicycle Campaign as they rally near the end of the event and take a group ride through the city.
