Earth Day 2024

Earth day in santa barbara, california.

In 2024, we are aligning with the Earth Day Network’s theme of Planet vs Plastics. This theme calls to advocate for widespread awareness on the health risks of plastics, rapidly phasing out single use plastics and pushing for a strong UN Treaty on Plastic Pollution by the end of 2024.

The Santa Barbara Earth Day festival is one of the longest-running Earth Day celebrations in the country – and is believed to be one of the largest Earth Day festivals on the West Coast. Santa Barbara’s environmental reputation attracts national media, celebrity attention, and local crowds.
