celebrating London’s environmental community
Celebrate all the good work, wins, and potential in our community, as we look to make London one of the greenest cities in Canada
There will be activities for wherever you are on your sustainability journey, with practical, hands-on workshops with real solutions
fun for everyone
Doing good by the planet SHOULD be fun!
And, at Earthfest, it will be!!!
And much, much, much more... Earthfest is a community co-creation and we welcome the creative contribution of all Londoners to make Earthfest whatever you dream possible.
Earth Day (April 22) unites millions of people around the world to inspire action to protect our beautiful, abundant planet against further climate change and environmental degradation.
2022 saw London’s first annual Earthfest in Victoria Park, with over 350 attendees and 30 exhibitors. Earthfest 2023 hopes to build on this success.

These stories could be small actions or big projects that take climate action. The goal is to display our community members' successes and inspire Londoners to make a difference in their communities.
