Reduce Plastic – Fantastic!’ at the April 28th Earth Festival
Celebrate – learn – grow – as 5000 visitors and participants work to honor our theme ‘Reduce Plastic – Fantastic!’ at the 9th Sustainable Cherry Hill Earth Festival. South Jersey’s largest eco-event marking Earth Day takes place Saturday, April 28 at historic Croft Farm in Cherry Hill. Be part of at this all-weather event taking place 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. 

Consider biking to our free festival - since free parking can be a challenge at this well-attended event. A free bike parking area is available friends and family can safely stow bicycles and helmets at this volunteer-staffed area across from the Croft Farm house. 

Start the day with the free, Family Fun Bike Ride; this is an enjoyable two or nine-mile ride from Croft Farm to the adjacent Cherry Hill Barclay Farm neighborhood. Bike ride registration is required and participants (aged 8 or older) must wear a helmet. (Registration coming February 2018) Bike ride check-in is at 8 a.m. and the ride is completed in time for the official start of the Earth Festival at Croft Farm.

Festival visitors enjoy the 9:45 opening event that also kicks off two stages of live, free, family-friendly entertainment throughout the day. 

Across three farmstead acres there will be more than 100 displays that focus in part on this year's festival theme, “Reduce Plastic – Fantastic!” Exhibitors including all 19 Cherry Hill Schools, show how communities can help counter climate change by reducing plastic waste in ways large and small.

In addition, the festival will include a recycling depot for:
• Some e-waste drop-off, 
• gently worn shoes, 
• wire hangers, 
• batteries, 
• plastic bags 

The festival includes:
• healthy food choices for purchase
• plant-swap
• arts and crafts
• demonstrations to reduce your carbon footprint.
