                              This years celebration will be April 20th, 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.                     

                              Brought to you by the leadership of Woodbury Parks & Recreation.


Like the original Earth Day celebrated in America in 1970, Woodbury’s version of Earth Day has evolved over time. Celebrating Earth Day in Woodbury is a tradition that began almost 30 years in the New Morning Market parking lot at their old store in Middle Quarter Mall.


After hosting an annual celebration in the parking lot for two decades, New Morning Market worked with the town and community partners to move the event to Hollow Park in 2012 as it had grown to attract upwards of 5000 attendees and more space was needed.


Since 2016, the event has been presented under the leadership of the Pomperaug River Watershed Coalition. In 2024, Woodbury Parks and Recreation will assume the event leadership role.


While the event has evolved and the leadership changes, one of the core themes will continue to remain the same.


“Earth Day is about bringing our community together,” a sentiment shared by John Pittari owner of New Morning Market and founder of Woodbury Earth Day, Carol Haskins, executive director of Pomperaug River Watershed Coalition and past event organizer, and Jami Gore, Director of Woodbury Parks and Recreation on behalf of the 2024 event steering committee.

Jami continued on to say, "We are proud and excited to be the new hosts of Woodbury Earth Day! It was too important to let go of a 30-year tradition."
