Centennial Park Hosts Nashville Earth Day Festival This Weekend


Nashville Earth Day Festival will return to Centennial Park at 2500 West End Avenue in a socially distanced manner on Saturday, April 24 from 11 AM – 6 PM.

This free family event will bring the Nashville community together to celebrate our planet and inspire positive environmental change.

“We are proud to have Centennial Park as the location of Nashville’s Earth Day celebration,” said Metro Parks Director Monique Odom. “This event, more so than any other, emphasizes the department’s mission to preserve, protect, and restore the natural heritage of the city’s municipal parklands for the benefit of the community and, in turn, the planet. Some people say that our planet is a speckle in space, but it is the only one we can call home and we will continually strive to preserve and nurture its beauty now and for generations to come.”

“Amazon is growing roots here in Nashville. In partnership with the Centennial Park Conservancy and the Nashville Tree Foundation, we are honored to sponsor Earth Day and donate these trees to our neighbors,” said Courtney Ross, Amazon’s Nashville Manager of External Affairs. “Through The Climate Pledge, we’re dedicated to zero net carbon by 2040. While this is a global goal for sustainability, we’ll get there by investing locally – building a sustainable business for our customers, our community, and the planet.”
