Earth Day Nyack Celebration and MusicFest

For the fourth year running, Nyack will honor Mother Earth with an event that aims to raise awareness and encourage local action to preserve a healthy and sustainable Rockland County. This year, Earth Day Nyack will be celebrated on Saturday, April 16th from 12pm to 5pm in the heart of the village at the Main Street Gazebo, Cedar Street and surrounding parking area.

Earth Day 2016 Poster FINALVisitors will enjoy a day of Earth-friendly how-to’s ― such as recycling, gardening and composting tips — plus a diverse line-up of local artists providing live music, vendors and artisans offering environmentally friendly and sustainable products and services, children’s activities, delicious natural foods and loads of family fun.

Kids’ activities will include art projects, face painting and henna tattoos. Admission is free. A rain date is scheduled for April 17th.

Earth Day 2015_bEarth Day Nyack is pleased to once again welcome the Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Master Gardeners who will host an organic gardening workshop. Visitors are invited to participate in the workshop and take home some great tips. Other exciting highlights include an Earth-friendly sculpture made by students at Ramapo College. Visitors are also welcome to bring and display their own sculptures made from recycled materials.

As in past years, Keep Rockland Beautiful will begin and end their Community Clean-up project at the Earth Day Nyack event site. Interested participants should meet at 9:30am to join a clean-up crew at the Gazebo before Earth Day Nyack kicks off later in the day. Check their website for details (
