Lakewood Earth Day Celebration

Each April, communities across the world celebrate Earth Day as a way to increase awareness of environmental issues.

The City of Lakewood Earth Day Celebration has transformed over the years into a community festival that features music, food, art, exhibits, and activities that spread environmental awareness and bring the community together. 

In 2020, the celebration went virtual and thousands of Lakewood residents were able to come together online to educate and learn from one another, dance, create and celebrate!

2021 Event Updates

The in-person 2021 Earth Day Celebration at Heritage Lakewood is cancelled. However, our planning committee is hard at work to make sure there are plenty of opportunities for the Lakewood community to engage and celebrate Earth Day. We look forward to celebrating with the community in the safest way possible!

 Some examples of what to expect include:

  • Nature-inspired art installations at local parks
  • Chalk art at local parks
  • An Earth Day video playlist with fun, educational clips
  • At-home activities to build community and show care and respect for our environment
