Inspiring Experiences for Everyone

In 2016, Earth Day Texas connected 130,669 attendees with exhibitors from nonprofits, businesses, government agencies, and academic institutions.


Get out and get inspired.

Attendees spend time in a historic park with family and friends enjoying programming and learning how they can use the information, products, services, and opportunities presented by exhibitors to benefit the environment.


Talk about issues, opportunities, and involvement.

Programming and exhibition allows for a personal and informative dialogue that inspires attendees to learn more, get involved, support a cause, donate, volunteer, or adopt sustainable products.


Apply what is learned.

Our goal is to work with our exhibitors to provide attendees with the information and tools they need to make sustainable choices that enhance their lives while benefitting the planet.

Exhibition Departments

Exhibitors are departmentalized based on the type of work that they do and where the attendees can apply what they have learned from the exhibitor. For example, if a renewable energy producer plans to exhibit its commercial or civic offerings, it would be in the Home & Garden department. If that same exhibitor plans to exhibit its commercial or civic offerings, it would be in the Infrastructure & Industry department.

Participation is Paramount

Participation helps draw new audiences that otherwise may not engage.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on environmental education and awareness, Earth Day Texas has created the world's largest annual forum for sharing the latest initiatives, conservation efforts, products, discoveries, research, innovations, and sustainability practices that play an important role in improving environmental quality.

The event is held every year in late April to create an engaging atmosphere for interdisciplinary thought, learning, networking, engagement, and action that can be put into practice by participants and attendees year- round.

In 2017, the E-Day Conference opens a day before the exhibits and public event. It is focused on networking opportunities, conferences, and meetings for professionals in businesses, nonprofits, government organizations, and academia. The public event with programming and exhibits overlaps with the E-Day Conference on Friday, April 21, and continues through Sunday, April 23.

Please visit our website at earthdaytx.org to learn more about participating in Earth Day Texas' monthly events, expeditions, and new programming initiatives that keep the conversation moving year-round.

Additional Ways to Engage
Additional Participation Opportunities

Meeting space is offered as part of the E-Day Conference, a series of professional-oriented programming tracks hosted within the greater Earth Day event. Organizations host regularly scheduled or special meetings; facilitate collaborative conversations, network, and participate in other talks and events hosted by leaders from environmental nonprofits, businesses, academia, and government.


Conference space is offered as part of the E-Day Conference for organizers that are expecting large audiences. Conferences can be planned and promoted that address a wide variety of professional, nonprofit, academic, policy, or consumer topics. Conferences can be stand-alone events or developed in connection with exhibitor pavilions that represent the conference’s constituent members.


Salons are a new component in the makeup of the EDTx exhibition areas and will be hosted by specific organizations. Salons will be built with both presentation and seating space and designed to facilitate organized discourse on planned topics at regular intervals throughout each day. At times when formal programming is not scheduled, salons serve as an area for attendees to informally gather or meet with presenters to discuss topics or presentations.


Pavilions are on the exhibition floor and are composed of specially curated exhibit spaces featuring exhibitors that are working on a special initiative or project or have a common theme. Pavilions will feature distinctive signage and be promoted as their own content areas in EDTx promotional and event materials. Exhibitors in pavilions are expected to each have a substantial exhibit like those in individual exhibit spaces.
