The City of Cupertino will host its 6th Annual Earth Day & Arbor Day Festival on Saturday, April 5th from 11 am – 3 pm at City Hall Plaza, next to Cupertino Library. Visit our interactive Festival, which promises fun-filled hands-on activities for residents of all ages. Nearly 7,500 members of our community will come together to protect our environment at this day of learning, creating, sharing, and inspiration.

The event will showcase the ABCs and 123s of growing greener for the greater good: from learning how to compost, to understanding more about solar technologies, to planting a native garden; there’ll be something for everyone! We’ll have over one hundred environmental organizations, businesses, and City services here to help you satisfy your eco-curiosity. Families, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and students are all invited to explore the many programs offered by the City of Cupertino and its environmental partners to create a healthy, safe and environmentally vibrant community for you to live, learn, work and play.

  • Peruse our sustainable marketplace
  • Listen to live music and watch live performances all festival long (see list below!)
