The BERKS COUNTY EARTH DAY 2023 event, the 53rd anniversary of the 1970 event, will be celebrated jointly with the ongoing City of Reading’s 275th Anniversary. The free Earth Day event, rain or shine, will take place Saturday April 22, 2023 at Reading City Park, 11th & Constitution Blvd from 12 noon – 5 pm. Parking is available around the park.
The theme of the City of Reading anniversary is “Past, Present, and Future”. The Earth Day theme is “Looking towards the Future”.
The event will feature eco-friendly exhibits and vendors, speakers, live music, animals, kids activities, and food. Looking towards the future, we need to do those things today that will make the world a better place for our children and grandchildren.
