8th Annual Earth Day & Arbor Day Celebration

Saturday, April 30 from 11 am - 3 pm, Civic Center Plaza (next to the Library) Please join us for a day of celebration, education, and action to grow a sustainable community. Flyer The City of Cupertino will host its 8th Annual Earth Day & Arbor Day Festival on Saturday, April 30th from 11 am – 3 pm at City Hall Plaza, next to Cupertino Library.

Nearly 7,500 members of our community will come together to protect our environment at this day of learning, creating, sharing, and inspiration. The event will showcase the ABCs and 123s of growing greener for the greater good: from learning how to compost, to understanding more about solar technologies, to planting a native garden; there’ll be something for everyone!

Families, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and students are all invited to explore the many programs offered by the City of Cupertino and its environmental partners to create a healthy, safe and environmentally vibrant community for you to live, learn, work and play.
