Earth Day Dallas features two days of engaging exhibits, compelling speakers, music, entertainment, food and fun for everyone. Join us April 21-22, 2012 in Fair Park to see how you can make a difference.
Mission:  Learn. Grow.

Celebrate Earth Day at this fun festival with exhibits, speakers, films, music, food & more focused on making a positive impact on our environment.

The heart of the festival is the Eco Expo, and exhibitors will use their presence to promote their achievements as green leaders, and teach attendees how to take environmentally responsible action by better utilizing available resources, switching to eco-friendly products, or joining their organizations.

In addition to the Eco Expo, attendees will have a number of educational entertainment options, which will include:

Join us for this event to meet up after the FARFA Pre-Conference. Organized by Slow Food DFW, GROW North Texas and the Farmers Market Friends to create the chance to miix, mingle and connect at this "no host" gathering.

Join us once again as we bring together all local vegan vendors to our regular weekly neighbor farmers market, White Rock Farmers Market.

White Rock Farmers Market will be opening an aisle at the farmers market dedicated to vegan only vendors to taste the power of plant-based. 

Disclaimer: Our regular weekly farmers market does have non-vegan products so the entire event is not vegan. We will have a vegan dedicated aisle and will highlight our regular farmers who will have an abundance of locally grown produce.
