"Admission to the Children’s Museum Tucson is free all weekend as we celebrate the Earth and – our favorite people – kids!"
Tucson Earth Day Festival at Children's Museum Tucson is from 9 am-1 pm on Saturday, April 23. The event spans 6th Avenue, which will be closed to traffic, with exhibitors on both the Museum grounds and in Armory Park. Admission to the Museum is free all day!
There will be more than 30 exhibitors at Tucson Earth Day Festival offering hands-on activities, demonstrations, and information on how live more sustainably. Visitors are encouraged to ride their bikes to the festival and visit Living Streets Alliance for decorations, repairs, and free helmets for kids. Meet Smokey Bear, make a recycled toy for your dog, or get your hands dirty in the compost. Don’t forget to stop by the new CMT photo booth inside the courtyard to share your experience with everyone!
Hungry? Food and drinks will be available from Espressoul coffee, You Sly Dog, and Ricuras de Venezuela.
The fun continues on Sunday, April 24, with Arizona Bilingual News’ 11th Annual Children’s Day Festival (Dia del Niño) from 10 am-2pm. The festival is taking over the Museum grounds with live music, folklorico, arts & crafts, food trucks, and giveaways. The event is free, as is Museum admission all day.
