Earth Day Festival & Craft Fair April 28 at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods

If you haven’t experienced the Earth Day festival at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods you should really do all you can to make it this year — you will not be disappointed!

Want activities for children and families? You got it! Both kids and adults love Silly Safaris live animal show and Mark Booth’s bird presentation. Then, there are the pony rides, a poetry class, necklace-making with the Terre Haute Children’s Museum, Bricks for Kids activities, and alpacas to pet.

Many of the alpacas will show off in an obstacle course set up in the alpaca pasture near Owens Hall. The Vigo County Alpaca Handlers 4-H Club members will lead the alpacas in jumping poles, walking over bridges and through rings.

Adults will enjoy about 40 handmade craft vendors, two cooking classes (one on making healthy chili and one on salad dressings), a Tai Chi demonstration, Sister Jody O’Neil’s art studio, and fiber demonstrations.

For all ages, there will be two opportunities to walk the nature trail guided by Indiana Forester Stu Haney; tour the organic garden and learn about grafted cucumber research and learn what White Violet Center grows and why.

The first 500 get a free tote bag and Trees, Inc. will be giving away hundreds of free saplings.

Plan to spend Saturday, April 28, west of the Wabash River! The Earth Day Festival & Craft Fair is from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Also on April 28, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. is the Wabashiki Art Fest at Wabashiki Fish and Wildlife Area‘s Dewey Point in West Terre Haute. Meet local artists and enjoy their art on display. A Turtle Trot fun run begins at 8:30 a.m. at Dewey Point and Emily’s Walk begins at 9 a.m. there, too. Proceeds from these events goes to the Wabashiki.
