The Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) is excited to celebrate its 30th
Earth Day Festival this Sunday, April 24, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at its Environmental Park located at 6700 Delilah Road in Egg Harbor Township, NJ.
The festival has been canceled for the past two years due to the pandemic. This year, it is back and better than ever! ACUA’s festival is the longest running and largest Earth Day Festival in South Jersey. The Authority expects to welcome more than 8,000 guests for a celebration of our collective home, Earth.
The festival will include more than 150+ local vendors, exhibitors, interactive entertainers, and musicians. There are a range of activities for all ages, including Wastewater Facility Tours, Touch-A-Truck, a hayride to the top of the landfill, a free seedling giveaway, recycling tours, a composting demonstration, interactive shows for kids, music, and free workshops. It is a perfect opportunity to learn about the environment while having fun and enjoying the day with family and friends.
The workshops will cover a variety of topics, including mini yoga sessions, a native plant “walk and talk,” the basics of raising backyard chickens, an overview of the Stockton University Maple Project, a sound bowl session, an introduction to mushrooms and a rain barrel demonstration.
“We are more than thrilled to host our Earth Day Festival once again,” said ACUA President Rick Dovey. “Welcoming the community back to celebrate the environment for the 30th
year is a wonderful feeling, especially after canceling the past two years. We look forward to this opportunity to instill an appreciation for the environment, show the important work we do here at ACUA, and highlight the good work of the many community groups and organizations in our area.”
Guests may visit the festival throughout the day and can park at ACUA’s facility or at an off-site parking area with shuttle service from Airport Commerce Center at 6550 Delilah Road.
