Celebrate Earth Day Locally

  • by

Earth Day is an annual event to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First held in 1970, it now includes a wide range of events coordinated globally by Earthday.org including 1 billion people in more than 193 countries. The official theme for 2024 is “Planet vs. Plastics.”

The City of Calabasas Earth Day Celebration and Green Expo will  take place on Saturday, April 13, 2024 from 2 pm  to 5 pm at the Las Virgenes Creek site, south of Agoura Road in Calabasas.

Over 50 exhibitors from all over Los Angeles

County and Ventura County will be participating in the

event to help participants take actions that will save

them money through efficiency while protecting our planet. The festival is free of charge and the Calabasas Earth Day event will have something of interest for everyone. The festival will also feature numerous children’s activities to teach kids about the environment while they have fun.

Calabasas Earth Day/Green Expo was created to be a day of education, celebration, and action for the natural world in which we live. It sets a clear example for people and businesses how simple lifestyle changes can make a difference.

 A large turnout of Calabasas residents are expected for this event; more than 2,000 people visited the last year’s Earth Day Celebration/Green Expo. This is a great opportunity to educate the public on benefits of being “green,” on sustainability, energy conservation, and ways they can help the environment.
