Earthplace Festival Weekend

Saturday, October 7th | Sunday, October 8th

 

Come celebrate the beauty and bounty of fall with our annual weekend of spectacular outdoor activities. We’ll kick off the party on Saturday night, October 7th with our Woodside Bash, an adults-only evening under the stars. Sunday will be a day full of festive activities and seasonal crafts exciting for the whole family.

 

To honor the 50th anniversary of the Earthplace Preschool, supporters of the Earthplace Festival will ensure that our early childhood nature-based education programs remain accessible to all with proceeds benefiting scholarships, services to support children with special needs and transportation to improve access for underserved area communities.

Our much anticipated (adult only) Woodside Bash will be held Saturday, October 7th (RAIN OR SHINE)!
