EarthFest 2019

  • Knoxville Botanical Gardens and Arboretum 2743 Wimpole Avenue Knoxville, TN, 37914 United States (map)

Join us again this year for engaging speakers & demonstrators, a vibrant youth area, live music, food trucks, and craft beer!

This is EarthFest’s 20th year anniversary! To celebrate, our theme is 20/20 Vision. This theme hopes to explore ways Knoxville and EarthFest has engaged in sustainable practices for the past twenty years, as well as showcase what sustainability in the area will look like in the next 20 years. We are hoping to bring local leaders, small businesses, and corporations to share their vision or their products that will help 2020 look greener.

New this year: “Ask the Expert”. Small one-on-one sessions will give you the opportunity to talk to local experts about a broad range of green topics including, home weatherization, solar energy, zero-waste/recycling, composting, urban gardening, micro plastics, etc.

Be on the lookout for environmental lead-up events as well as sneak peaks of the EnviroCharacters attending this year!

The event will be held at the Knoxville Botanical Gardens and Arboretum.

Parking will be available at the Community Evangelistic Church 2650 Boyds Bridge Pike, Knoxville, TN 37914 . There will be a shuttle from the church parking lot to the event lawn throughout the day. A scenic meandering foot path will also take you to the event (ground may be uneven).

The botanical Gardens is serviced by the Knoxville Area Transit (KAT) Route 34 bus system and it operates on weekends. Please visit the KAT website for more information about routes.

EarthFest is an annual Earth Day celebration with several green objectives: provide family-friendly (pets included) environmental education, support our sustainable local marketplace, showcase responsible environmental leadership, and demonstrate low- to zero-waste principles.
