A Leave-No-Trace Plastic-Free
and Sustainability Music Festival
April 23rd, 2023
EARTH DAY FESTIVAL
Springfield’s Earth Day Music and Sustainability Festival is our yearly music festival held on the Saturday closest to Earth Day. It’s a one-day, ticketed, plastic-free, music and sustainability festival that raises funds to help support our local environmental organizations.
Every year, we feature live musical acts from prominent local and regional bands, with top-notch production and stages. In addition to music, we invite our sponsors and other local businesses, who want to make an impact on the environmental movement, out to set up booths, where helpful information is shared, and sustainably-made goods are sold. All beverages are sold and served in commemorative, reusable, take-home cups that guests make a one-time purchase of to benefit the cause.
As a leave-no-trace event, guests have access to compostable/recyclable food containers and hydration stations where they can refill their own water bottles. All proceeds from the ticket sales go to the beneficiary organizations.
Most of all, we want to show that we can have a festival without all of the garbage! And that we can have fun while being environmentally conscious! By raising funds in a public and festive event, we hope to not only hand over much-needed cash to our beneficiaries, but also to serve as a yearly reminder to our local community of just how important it is to keep our environment clean and sustainable. We believe climate change action is urgently-needed, and that by taking care of our local community, we are helping the global cause.

What Attendees Say
"Great lineup that’s as very bit as stylistically diverse as it is immensely talented. Molly did a great job putting this together & it looks like the ol’ town can still turn out an outdoor banger when it really wants to."
