March, Earth Fair, and Rally Information

We're back, and with more speakers, more vendors, and more music than last year! Come join SE Michigan's largest Earth Day event as we ask Oakland County communities to seize this moment to take action to fight against the climate crisis while creating justice, protecting future generations, and creating sustainable jobs while learning about different ways to be sustainable and take action, all while having fun and meeting other like-minded people.

Come learn about sustainable products from professionals, meet environmental artists, hear from inspirational speakers, and march for a better world. And, do it all from our new location inside the Royal Oak Farmers Market's shed.
