Come out and help us celebrate Oak Cliff Earth Day on Sunday!

As in previous years, Oak Cliff Earth Day will feature a diverse line-up of entertainment, environmental education booths and green vendors and food trucks in beautiful Lake Cliff Park, at Colorado and Zang Boulevards.

Entertainment highlights include performances by Bandan Koro, a Dallas-based African drum and dance ensemble, the Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing Arts' Roots Jazz group and W.E Greiner Exploratory Arts Academy.

The fun family event is free.

At noon, a proclamation ceremony will be held at Lake Cliff Park during Oak Cliff Earth Day to recognize the West Dallas Gateway Pecan Tree, deemed historic by the Texas Historic Tree Coalition. Later a plaque will be unveiled at Beckley and Commerce at 2 p.m. by the Fort Worth Avenue Development Group, in partnership with TXHTC and the city of Dallas.

The grassroots green festival was launched in 2007 by local volunteers who wanted to educate the community on eco-friendly living. After a 10-year-run, organizers took a hiatus in 2017. In 2018, GreenSourceDFW.org and its parent nonprofit, the Memnosyne Institute, took over as host with the support of some of the original organizers.
