Earth Day Richmond Festival 2015 (plus a bonus 5K!)

The Earth Day Richmond Festival is back and bigger than you ever imagined. Also, you can run in a green race before you stuff your face.

The Fest

The longest running Earth Day celebration in Richmond, Enrichmond’s Earth Day Festival is bigger and better than ever this year, celebrating the organization’s 25th birthday with much fanfare.

Located at Great Shiplock Park in Shockoe Bottom, the festival pairs your typical festival staples (i.e. food, beer, live music, and family activities) with riverfront fun (paddleboards, kayaking, and fishing). As always, the Earth Day Richmond Festival will feature exhibits and activities geared towards educating, sure, but also engaging attendees in fun and easy ways they can be a better guest on this very patient planet.

The 5K

The Race Without a Trace has a new course this year–one that shows off the city in all its spring glory. Starting in Chimborazo Park, moving through Church Hill, into Libby Hill, and down onto the Capital Trail and the Kanawha Canal, just in time for fun at the fest. And, of course, Enrichmond has made it a point to make it the greenest possible race.
