Join us for the South County's largest Earth Day celebration!

Enjoy fun activities and a showcase of products and services to help you reduce your impact on the environment, save money and live greener and healthier. Celebrate your love for the planet and be inspired and empowered to help its natural resources. You are encouraged to ride your human-powered vehicle (your bike!) to lessen your carbon footprint - we'll even provide a monitored bike parking corral.  


Bicycling Events
There will be several bicycling events at Earth Day.  City staff and the San Diego Bicycle Coalition are organizing a guided bike tour of the Bayshore Bikeway.  Interested participants should meet in front of the Outback Steakhouse at Plaza Bonita Mall by 9:30 am.  The tour will depart at 10:00 am and will end at the free bicycle valet provided by the City at Bayside Park, just in time for Earth Day activities.  At Bayside Park, children will be challenged to a Bicycle Rodeo.  Participants will be entered into a raffle to win prizes such as tool kits, bicycle helmets and head lamps.   BYOB – bring your own bike (and helmet) for all activities!  All skill levels (and all bikes) welcome.  For more information, please contact

Fix-It Clinic
We have been all too accustomed to the throw away lifestyle. If something doesn’t work, throw it out and buy a new one. Because of this behavior our landfills are filling at a rapid rate and electronic waste has become the one of the largest pollution generators. So why not learn how to fix it?!

Bring your broken, non-functioning things: electronics, appliances, computers, toys, bicycles, clothes, etc. for assessment, disassembly, and possible repair. We’ll provide workspace, specialty tools, and guidance to help you disassemble and troubleshoot your item. Whether we fix it or not, you’ll learn more about how it was manufactured and how it worked. This is a family-friendly event: children are heartily invited!  Limited to items you can hand-carry in.  For more details and to register, please visit

Food Trucks & Organic Fare
Browse through the fruits, vegetables, and foods at the farmers market, and enjoy delicious cuisine from some of San Diego County's most popular organic or healthy food trucks.

EV Ride and Bike
Test drive electric vehicles and ride electric bikes!

Tie Dye Workshop
Bring plain, light-colored shirts, shorts, socks, or sheets – and we'll show you how to make them have character and color!

More Fun for Everyone:

  • Cutify Shirts and Bags - upcycled shirts and bags go from boring to awesome!
  • Reuse and Repair Area - learn all about ways to reuse, upcycle, repurpose, and repair before tossing
  • Energy conservation information
  • Art exhibits
  • Free Yoga classes
  • Fun & games for Kids
  • Healthy living information
  • Free Oil Change and Recycling Kits (while supplies last).

Volunteer Info:

I LOVE A CLEAN SAN DIEGO needs you! We are looking for Zero-Waste Heroes to help us supervise the recycling and composting program . Our Zero-Waste Heroes "walk the talk" of sustainability, and will advise guests in which bin to put waste, as well as teach them about composting and recycling practices. More information and how to register can be found here!

See you at the Chula Vista Marina!
