The Fairfield Earth Day Celebration 2015, to be held on, April 25, will feature over 100 exhibitors, sustainable lifestyle exhibits, cooking demos, gardening experts, entertainment and music. 

A student Art Contest challenges elementary, middle school and high school students to get artistic about their hopes and thoughts on the environment. All drawings, paintings, photos and videos will be shown during the celebration at Fairfield Warde High School, the Fairfield’s Earth Day Celebration venue.

Emma Gleysteen, a junior at Fairfield Warde High School and chair of this year’s Art Contest, adds, “This is the perfect way to illustrate how ‘every day is Earth Day’ in Fairfield – and how we can make our town a healthier, safer place.”

Further highlights of the day-long event include Kristen Graves, a state troubadour, and a life-size replica of the Gustave Whitehead aircraft. In addition, the event offers exhibits on clean and renewable alternative energy choices, environmental conservation, finding healthy, organic foods and products and recycling.

Admission to the Fairfield Earth Day Celebration 2015 is free and hours are 10am-4pm.
