This upcoming Monday, April 22 is Earth Day. Beyond our plethora of ways to take in the Tampa Bay area’s natural beauty — with our beaches, springs, and fauna galore — there’s plenty of other ways to celebrate: t

  • Sunset Serenade | Monday, April 22 | Hop on the Sun Runner for a fare-free ride to the Dolphin Beach Resort accompanied by live music from local musicians.
  • Succulent Terrarium Workshop | Wednesday, April 24 | Learn how to keep and maintain a succulent terrarium at Cactus Moon in Tampa’s Seminole Heights neighborhood — it costs $40 and supplies are included.
  • Green Thumb Festival | Saturday, April 27+ Sunday, April 28 | While technically an Arbor Day celebration, this festival is worth checking out for the hundreds of vendors selling everything from orchids and fruit trees to native plants.

Find even more ideas on our events calendar.
