Posted at 9:40 PM, Mar 12, 2020

The Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival is getting postponed because of health concerns surrounding the coronavirus.

The Community Environmental Council (CEC) will postpone the 2020 Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival at Alameda Park until July 10-12th to support public health.

It was originally supposed to take place April 17th.

"While we are eager to bring our community together in honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, our focus is on ensuring we do this in a safe way that supports public health," stated Kathi King, Earth Day Festival Director. "As one of the longest-running Earth Day celebrations in the country, this event is a cornerstone of environmental action in our region, and we did not make the decision lightly."

The CEC is looking for other ways to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in April and is asking community members for suggestions.

In the meantime, event coordinators are encouraging people to get involved with the festival as vendors and sponsors.

CEC is partnering with Carp Events, Cultivate Events, LoaTree, Lucidity, New Noise Music Foundation, Oniracom, Pharos Creative, WA Event Management and Write Kinda Girl to produce the festival.
