A joyful community celebration of our natural environment, from the forest to the sea.

Come enjoy art, music, and street activities as we renew our commitment to protect the web of life.

9th Street Stage

Music and dance make Anacortes Earth Day complete. In the late afternoon, everyone can come to the dance floor and practice ballroom dancing on Rhythm Studio’s dance floor.

After the Procession of the Species at about 6:00, live rock music fills the air. First up is Anacopper Road, a local band with a repertoire of rock, country, and blues.

Headlining the entertainment at the 9th Street Stage is Pension King and the Dependents. This group, made up of current and former Rockfish Grill staff, presents an eclectic mix of acoustic driven classic rock covers and original material. They will play from about 7:00 until about 8:30.

Sustainable Fashion Show

How does a fashion show fit into an Earth Day event? For Sami and Amanda Leets of Aura Threadz and their colleagues, it’s all about making conscious choices about your clothing, including considering recycled/upcycled items. Watch local models show off outfits created from vintage and thrift store picks and see just how lovely sustainable fashion can be.

Gather near the front door of Aura Threadz at 705 Commercial at 6:00 and get ready to watch the flash mob-style show. MC Nora Mae Boehm will announce the models and tell you how you can reduce the impact of the fashion industry through smart purchases and practices.



Anacortes Brewery Beer Garden

Soaking up all the activities on Anacortes Earth Day can cause quite a thirst! Fortunately, the Anacortes Brewery Beer Garden at the 9th Street Stage is here to save the day. These community-minded folks serve up the best Anacortes Brewery has to offer, and they share the proceeds with a local non-profit.

Look for the tent in the Visitors Center parking lot at 9th and Commercial. And be sure to thank Rick and the crew for coming out.

Local Businesses Join In!

Look for curbside tables where you can get creative and make some Earth Day art. In the 800 block of Commercial Avenue, you can “play in the mud” with clayhouse studio.  Heading north, stop in at the Wishing Rock and plant a seed for spring. Next, find Moonwater Arts at their curbside maker space and create an earthy mobile. Finally, join the staff at Watermark Books and make an origami bookmark.
