Sisters of Providence to host Earth Day Festival on April 20

Join the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, and White Violet Center for Eco-Justice (WVC) for the largest and longest-running Earth Day celebration in West Central Indiana.

The festival will take place from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., on Saturday, April 20, at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, located 10 minutes northwest of downtown Terre Haute.

Immerse yourself in nature within the beautiful Woods while enjoying the many activities that will be offered. There’s something for everyone, including nature shows and earth-related craft activities for the children, as well as spinning, weaving and felting demonstrations.

There will be exhibits, tours of the organic gardens and horse barns and much, much more, including a face painting station!

And don’t forget the visits with the alpacas, which provide all of the fiber!

Plan to stop by the WVC Farm Store, where you can purchase seasonal organic produce from the garden, handmade and locally produced items – such as soaps, alpaca fiber goods, wood carvings, pottery – and much more.

Plenty of food options will be available during the festival.

Make sure to bring a refillable water bottle to use at the free and eco-friendly water station. In addition, the Sisters of Providence will also host a bake sale with homemade baked goods of all kinds.

Admission to the festival is free, but donations would be appreciated.

We will need many volunteers to ensure the Earth Day Festival is a successful event.

Volunteer stations range from running kids activities, gatekeepers, parking attendants, floaters, and much more! The QR code goes directly to the Sign Up Genius, which also contains more event details, or you can click here to access it.
