Earth Day


Earth Day 2018 Starts in

Summary from 2017’s Earth Day

The 6th Annual Earth Day Community Celebration co-sponsored by Indianapolis Power & Light Company and Citizens Energy Group returns with hands-on, environmentally-friendly  activities by 30+ exhibitors and a picnic area (see list of activities below) with live music on the WTTS stage and food trucks. FREE admission. Voluntary donations welcome.

This family-friendly event is one of the best things to do in Indianapolis for kids. Hands-on activities include making a mini greenhouse, eco-art projects, and instructional activities for attracting bees and butterflies. This year’s free kids t-shirt to paint features Indiana’s river otters.
