Earth Celebration Day & Festival of Art 2021

April 24 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Our 2021 Earth Celebration Day will be at Red Run Park, Rouzerville, Pa.

The Institute’s Earth Celebration Day and Festival of Art is a full day of discovery, education, music, and art.

This year, the event will be modified to accommodate safety protocols for Covid-19.
By necessity, the 2021 Earth Celebration Day will look a little different than in past years—but we have some great stuff happening!
