About the Day

FREE entry. All Parking at West Valley College with Free Shuttle Service

This free community festival is held throughout Montalvo’s grounds to honor International Earth Day (April 22, 2024). Bring the whole family, and a picnic, or enjoy the food trucks for a day of environmentally creative hands-on workshops, demonstrations, performances, music, Santa Clara County Park Ranger led hikes, and more. Engage with a range of events for every generation of your family that will raise awareness and celebrate the environment and environmental justice. Learn from visiting local community engaged artists, the Santa Clara County Park Rangers, our own master gardener, and more.

Spend a wonderful day in the park at Montalvo and celebrate the creative community and the environmental diversity of the foothills of the Santa Cruz mountains. Participating artists, artisans, food trucks, musicians, and environmentalists will all contribute their unique perspectives to this gathering, seeking to build common experiences through inclusive arts and Earth Day programming.
