At the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, every day is Earth Day! In honor of international Earth Day, we invite you to join hundreds of your neighbors at the annual Earth Day in Frick Park, a free community celebration.

In the spirit of Earth Day, we encourage all event-goers to consider biking, carpooling, or busing to these events. Reusable water bottles are also recommended. 

In the case of inclement weather, check back here for event cancellation information.

*Gathering around a campfire makes for lifelong memories, but backyard fires can have a serious impact on air quality. We take every measure to minimize health and environmental impacts by burning a safe distance from homes and playgrounds, and by following Allegheny County Health Department standards and EPA recommendations for responsible fires. You can do your part by rethinking your backyard burn in favor of joining your neighbors to walk, bike, bus or carpool to our community campfire.
