The 2020 Greater Cincinnati Earth Day Celebration canceled at Summit Park but we'll celebrate online the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day April, 22, 2020.

The theme for 2020 is “What You Can Do!” Normally, over 125 exhibitors, local music, local vegetarian foods, and Madtree Brewing Company’s craft beer make the festival one of the best environmental education events in the region. Typically, attendance is over 8000. Activities and presentations about environmental education will be featured at the event. Families from all over the region are encouraged to get out and enjoy Earth Day even if it's only at their local park, traditionally the first fun family outdoor event of the year!

Greater Cincinnati Earth Day Celebration 2020 is supported by Blue Ash Summit Park and Edible Ohio Valley Magazine.

The 2020 Greater Cincinnati Earth Day Celebration canceled at Summit Park but we'll celebrate online the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day April, 22, 2020.

I want to update you on the status of Earth Day 2020 in light of COVID-19. First, though, a round of thanks to our first responders, medical professionals, educators and public peacekeepers who are continuously working to keep us safe. 

We understand the value of Earth Day and the morale boost it would have, but we also understand that this is a very difficult time for many businesses, families and nonprofits. We will cancel the 2020 event and look forward to April 24, 2021.

We will be having a Virtual Earth Day Event April 22, 2020 from 9 am to 8 pm on our
Facebook, Instagram and Twitter social medals channels. Please check in to learn about all the cool and creative ways environmental organizations around the globe are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. GCEC will be sharing some ways we are sustaining hope through this crisis and inviting all of you to join us on social media—everything from transitioning our flagship event, Earth Day, into a digital event available to more people than ever, we’re going to be thinking of all the ways we can support one another. Meanwhile, we are inviting you to share your stories and ideas with us. What is keeping you going right now? What kind of support could a community like ours provide? Online courses? Interviews with technical experts? Here's a link to the paper airplane race.

To those who registered and paid for booth space, we are offering refunds by check. Please reply with payee and where to mail. There are several ways to help the next Earth Day. For instance, allow us to refund less PayPal processing fees, or allow us to hold your registration fees until next year. Or, consider making your payment a donation to the Greater Cincinnati Earth Coalition {501(c)(3)} and its environmental education mission.   

With gratitude and care, Chuck Lohre, Chair, Greater Cincinnati Earth Coalition, 513260-9025, info@cincinnatiearthday.org
