18th Annual EarthFest is held annually in Knoxville in a NEW location! It is free to the public and a family friendly event (pets included). The 2017 theme is Sprouting New Possibilities and EarthFest has a few basic objectives for all the participants. Among them are to celebrate Earth Day, provide family friendly environmental education, share Ideas for local action, create a marketplace for environmental friendly & local commerce, showcase environmental and responsible leadership; and to demonstrate zero waste principles.

• Educational exhibits hosted by local environmentally-friendly businesses, organizations and non-profits

• Zero-waste event (There are no trash cans on site. EarthFest organizers provide recycling and composting opportunities for everything distributed at the event. We serve food on compostable plates, distribute reusable silverware and provide water stations to refill bottles.)

• Educational scavenger hunt (Kids and adults get their scavenger hunt card stamped as they walk around the event and are then entered to win lots of cool prizes.)

• Youth area with FREE kids activities

• Local food vendors/food trucks

• Pet friendly

• Buskers and acoustic musicians performing live music throughout the gardens
