We’re gearing up to host Oak Cliff Earth Day!

The 15th annual event, hosted by Green Source DFW, will be held Sunday, April 21, from noon to 5 p.m. at Lake Cliff Park in Dallas.

North Texans are invited to learn how to become more environmentally friendly, shop eco-friendly vendors, listen to live music and enjoy food truck fare while soaking up the beauty of scenic Lake Cliff Park.

The grassroots eco-friendly fest was launched by Oak Cliff volunteers in 2007. Green Source DFW, along with its parent nonprofit the Memnosyne Institute, took over as host in 2018 with the support of many longtime volunteers.

This year, the festival will feature more than 100 booths, showcasing local businesses, nonprofits and municipal agencies and their green projects and products.

Among them, GSDFW reporter and author Amy Martin will be selling copies of her newest book Wild DFW: Explore the Amazing Nature In and Around Dallas-Fort Worth, published by Timber Press last July. Copies are $26. Stickers are $2. Stop by her booth and have her sign your copy! She'll also have her previous books for sale, Itchy Business ($15) and Holy Smokes ($12).

Meanwhile, at the Green Source DFW booth, you can purchase festival T-shirts by Sully Ridout Design for $15 or two for $25. 

“We are looking forward to this year's Oak Cliff Earth Day. It will be one of the best ever,” said Wendel Withrow, Green Source DFW director. “You are welcome to come early and get a good parking spot and best selection at one of the over 100 vendors.”
