Local Performers Add Pizzazz to 2024 Earth Day Festival

Earth Day PerformersCome enjoy the show at the county’s largest Earth Day extravaganza – the Fairfax County Park Authority’s 2024 Earth Day Festival – from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 20, at the Sully Historic Site.

Since 1970, Earth Day has been a worldwide tradition for celebrating, discovering, protecting and preserving the natural wonders around us. For years, the Park Authority has blended a wide range of entertainment, exhibits, animals, activities and games with opportunities for discovery and exploration to foster continued enjoyment of and connection to the outdoors.

This year’s event boasts an incredible lineup of local artists and performers providing live entertainment for kids and adults of all ages. Headlining acts will include The Recycling Pirates, Kevin Elam and Friends (folk music) and The Sonic Boom (rock ‘n’ roll). We’ll also be joined by several special guests, including the tenacious Topper Shutt and the WUSA9 weather team, and the National Wildlife Foundation’s Ranger Rick.

With so much to do, learn and experience, this year’s Earth Day Celebration is one you will not want to miss! Individual admission is free regardless of age. There is a parking fee of $10 per vehicle. For complete festival information, visit the Earth Day website.

Sully Historic Site is located at 3650 Historic Sully Way in Chantilly, Virginia. For more information, visit the Sully Historic Site website or call 703-437-1794.
