Earth Day/Day of the Child

participants of the 2018 Earth Day/Day of the Child + information on 2019 event

"This year Watsonville’s Earth Day will bring awareness to the “Plastic-Free Campaign” that the City is promoting.This is a worldwide movement to create consciousness about plastic pollution on our planet. Join us to learn more!"

Families are invited to the 17th annual festival with over 70 spectacular booths of recreation, crafts and learning. Our motto this year is #OurPlanetOurChildren   #NuestroPlanetaNuestrosHijos as Earth Day is all about protecting our environment for the future and Day of the Child is a Latin American tradition honoring youth. 

The festival is FREE aside from food booths. Special highlights this year include an interactive rhythm circle with Survivor’s Healing Center at 3 pm, the gigantic mobile trash museum, local cheer and dance teams, jump houses, a climbing wall and over 70 booths of free games and crafts. At least a third of the activities are developed and guided by our local middle and high school students. They are the mentors for the children and gain life and career skills as they share.
