Earth Day Street Fair

The Earth Day Street Fair takes place on Saturday, April 20th, from 4:00 – 8:00PM. Music, dance, and art set the festive tone, and environmental non-profits host activity stations to engage community members of all ages. As you check out what’s available, try out some options, and run into people you know, you’ll enjoy the celebratory atmosphere. The Procession of the Species will wind its way down the middle of Commercial Avenue at about 5:00.

Partner Organizations

As you join in the street activities, you can learn more about local groups focused on protecting the flora and fauna of Fidalgo Island, like Friends of the Forest and SeaDoc. You’ll find out classes and activities you and your family may want to engage in, such as the programs offered by the Anacortes Waterfront Association and the Salish Sea School. And you’ll find fun opportunities for young ones like street chalk and face painting. 


Safety is a primary concern for Anacortes Earth Day. Organizers have met with the Anacortes Police Department and taken their guidance to heart. The Rotary Club of Anacortes is heading up the plan for street closures, blockades, and safety volunteers. We owe them our gratitude—the event would not be possible without their leadership.


Downtown restaurants are as excited about Anacortes Earth Day as we all are! Many have created special food and drink offerings, and some have built an entire menu around the occasion. Stop in before the festivities begin or during the Street Fair for a meal and a beverage.
