This free Earth Day festival is made possible by PNC with support from AES Indiana, Citizens Energy Group, and many others who share the common goal of protecting the earth and its resources. Participating organizations share the Earth Day belief that sustainability is the path to prosperity.

Last year’s highlights of the event (to be updated):

  • The AES electric car show featuring Motor. Get a first-hand glimpse at the Tesla Model 3 and Model X, Audi E-Tron and Chevy Bolt and see just how easy it is to start driving electric!

Before COVID, more than 5,000 people of all backgrounds and faiths attended this events. 2022 had about 800 to 1,000 people in attendance. Now is the time for the unstoppable courage to preserve and protect our health, our families and our livelihoods by investing in our planet. The event is FREE for patrons.

Please note that we ask that your four-legged family members wait for you at home while you attend this event; with children and lots of distracting activities, we want to ensure everyone’s safety, including dogs.
