2017: "Building a Better World."

Join us for Wilmington's Earth Day celebration on April 22, 2017!

We as a people are key to generating a new model of society which is more respectful of nature, the environment and biodiversity. With a close relationship with food, knowledge of the land and farming techniques, along with close relationships to the people in our communities, we can promote and preserve an agriculture model which is fair to the environment and people.Contact Us if you’d like to share how you’re incorporating this theme into YOUR world!

Shuttles, Parking & Map

In addition to hosting Wilmington's Earth Day Festival, Hugh MacRae Park may be open and available for other, non-related events. Due to the size and nature of the event, some of the Park's interior roads will be closed and not accessible, adding to the already limited parking situation.

FREE Shuttle Service...USE IT!

To accommodate the typical 5000+ festival attendees, the Earth Day Alliance has arranged FREE shuttle service (sponsored by Wave Transit) to and from the park. Parking for this year's shuttle service will be at the Long Leaf Mall. Participants are welcome to park in the lot behind and to the side of Old Time Pottery along Shipyard Blvd.

Please look for signage to identify the parking location and shuttle pick up. The WAVE shuttle will be running from this spot to the park from 11:30am-6:30pm and run approximately every 20 minutes.

We will also have a shuttle running from DREAMS of Wilmington from 2pm-6pm to accommodate residents in the downtown area. The shuttle times for this area are:

Departure times from Dreams: 2:05pm, 2:55pm, 3:45pm, 4:10pm, and 5:00pm

Departure times from Hugh MacRae Park back to DREAMS: 2:30pm, 3:20pm, 4:10pm, 4:35pm and 5:25pm (LAST SHUTTLE BACK)

If you're not familiar with the area, please refer to this map of Hugh MacRae Park and the surrounding area:




Ride your Bike to the Celebration!

Because of the limited parking, this is a perfect opportunity to remind yourself of Wilmington Earth Day's 2009 theme: "How do you get around". Consider riding a bike when planning your transportation to the Festival. If you are one of the growing number of North Caroliners who are looking for a great excuse to ride your bike...here it is.

Watch for our upcoming map of bike paths leading to Hugh MacRae Park. As soon as it's complete — we'll be adding it to this page.
