Sunday, April 27
Durham Central Park
502 Foster St.
Noon - 5 p.m. 

“Go Green” at Durham’s Earth Day Festival. Participants will enjoy "green" activities and demos; learn about many green practices and products at the Sustainability Expo and Earth Art Market; and enjoy great music, food and much more!
Plan your trip to Earth Day! Do your part to go green and walk, skate, bike, ride the bus, or carpool to Earth Day. 

Members of Durham’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission will host a valet bicycle parking service near the corner of Foster and Hunt streets – ride in and check your bicycle for free! Get your bike safety checked and learn how to change a flat as well.

There is something for everyone!
