Natural Awakenings Westchester / Putnam / Dutchess New York

Green Ossining 13th Annual Earth Day

This free festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., April 22, 2023, at Louis Engel Waterfront Park. Green Ossining founder and Chairperson Suzie Ross says, “Learn how to live a more sustainable life, visit artisan vendors, and enjoy food and live music on the banks of the Hudson River.” With as many as 4,000 attendees expected and more than 100 vendors, this community-run Earth Day festival has grown from its initial 300 attendees and 20 vendors in its first year. The zero-waste event aims to upcycle, repurpose and divert to compost as much as possible.

There will be hands-on activities and educational opportunities for everyone, as well as a full day of great live music and entertainment. “We remain keenly aware of the great challenges affecting our natural environment, our planet and life as we know it,” says Ross. “We are also of the belief that there is much we can each personally do to affect positive change through the everyday choices we each have the power to make. You’ll find many things you love about festivals—food, music, artisans, and activities—but we hope you’ll also join us in our recognition of the urgency to action that is needed.”

Highlights include arts and artisan vendors; eco-demonstrations and hands-on activities; focused kids’ activity zone; food foraging with The Rewilding School; environmental advocacy organizations; E-waste drive/textile recycling drop-off; delicious local food, including vegetarian and vegan fare; craft beer; local “green” services/products/solutions; eco-friendly products and how to save money by reducing our carbon footprint; community organizations in our own backyard; live music all day; and more.
