Earth Day 2023 @ Cooper Street/Abbott Square

April 22, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm


We are very excited to bring back our annual Earth Day Santa Cruz celebration in 2023! This year we bring the event to a new location, in beautiful Downtown Santa Cruz on Cooper St, Abbott Square, and the MAH. We look forward to gathering local businesses and organizations for a day of fun and environmentally focused activities and education. We will feature live music from Coffee Zombie Collective, face painting, a photo booth, lots of food options from Abbott Square and our other downtown eateries, and many activities for kids to take part in and even earn a sweet treat by participating in our interactive Passport Program. We will also be putting on an environmentally focused fashion show featuring local kids from the Fashion Teens program. We look forward to seeing all of you for Earth Day 2023!

Free parking will be available at the County building, located at 701 Ocean St. It is a short walk across the pedestrian bridge to the event.
