Ask Greg Ziesemer, Executive Director, Earth Day Indiana about EARTH DAY, and he’ll tell you it’s a passion, with a purpose!
Here he is to share more about The Earth Day Indiana Festival happening June 5, 2021 at Garfield Park in Indianapolis– a free annual event designed to celebrate and educate on environmental topics such as recycling, conservation of natural resources and sustainable living.

• Free Parking with a complimentary shuttle bus from Emerich Manual High School, just 1/2 mile west of Garfield Park at 2405 Madison Avenue. The shuttle will drop your family off at the festival’s Welcome Center.
• The annual festival has been taking place for more than 30 years and welcomes families from Central Indiana and the Midwest to learn and be inspired to do their part for environmental responsibility.
• Why the change from March to June this year? If we know one thing about Indiana weather, it’s that it’s unpredictable! Over the years, our rain-or-shine festival has seen its share of inclement weather in April. By moving to the early June date, we can all but ensure a beautiful, balmy day. Additionally, the annual festival seeks to promote recycling, protecting natural resources and encouraging everyday practices that are good for our earth 24/7, 365 days a year.
