Earth Day festival returning to Portland

A new coalition has emerged to revive Portland’s Earth Day tradition.

The Portland Earth Day Coalition, formed early this year, is being coordinated by Bob New, who helped coordinate the 2006, 2007, and 2008 Earth Day events in Portland sponsored by The City Repair Project.

This year’s event will take place at Kenton Park in North Portland on Saturday, April 26, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Nonprofit organizations, sustainable-oriented businesses, food carts and other sponsors can sign up for booths at the new Earth Day website, at earthdaypdx.com.

Two stages of live music and other entertainment are planned, along with a Kids’ Village, Procession of the Species parade, Soapbox Speaker’s Stage and other features.

For more information or to volunteer, contact Bob New at 707-726-2042, or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , or visit the website, earthdaypdx.com.
