Lowell Earth Day Festival & Parade

Each year UMass Lowell and community partners collectively organize Lowell Earth Day, a city-wide, month-long celebration of the arts, nature, and sustainability culminating in a downtown Festival and Parade.

Upcoming Event: Lowell Earth Day Planning Meeting, January 19, University Crossing 490, 8-11 a.m.

Save the Date: April 21, 2018

We noticed many organizations and institutions sporadically hosted individual Earth Day events in Lowell and surrounding communities but there was no collective effort between all the groups. This all changed in late 2014 when UMass Lowell led an exploration of opportunities for collaboration with a wide variety of community organizations and UMass Lowell faculty, students and staff to create a month-long calendar of events for April. It was a huge success and annually since over 50 organizations stage events to celebrate Lowell’s sustainability in all of its aspects – environmental, artistic and cultural and participate in Lowell's Earth Day Festival & Parade at the end of April.
