BROADLANDS, Va., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- On the heels of the highly successful inaugural EarthDay@Loudoun Family Festival that drew more than 2,000 families in 2009, the Broadlands Wildlife Habitat Committee is gearing up for this year's event that will likely leave an indelible eco-impact on Loudouners.  The 2nd annual EarthDay@Loudoun Family Festival will take place on Sunday, April 25th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Willow Creek Farm in Broadlands, VA. This admission-free festival will offer virtually everything for the eco-conscience including more than 75 exhibitors, a Green Marketplace offering earth-friendly products and services, hands-on educational activities for all ages and many other entertainment options.

John Stevens, the event's Honorary Co-Chair and the Chairman of the Loudoun County Public School Board said EarthDay@Loudoun will be an opportunity for families to become real agents of change.  "The EarthDay@Loudoun Family Festival will educate, entertain and inspire people to make quick and easy lifestyle changes.  This is a new way of looking at many aspects of our lives, from what we buy, throw away and recycle, to where we buy our food, how we landscape and how to conserve," said Stevens.

The festival is designed to be a family-oriented event to educate Loudouners on the environmental changes happening in the local area.  Scott York, Honorary Co-Chair of the event and Chairman of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors said the Willow Creek Farm venue will offer a backdrop that will truly motivate people to make a difference.  "We all can benefit from education and direction about the evolving focus of wildlife conservation.  This venue truly captures the essence of our new eco-friendly world and it's right in our own backyard in the Broadlands," said York.

The EarthDay@Loudoun Family Festival is a non-profit event in partnership with The Piedmont Environmental Council. Event sponsors include I Am Modern Lifestyle Magazine for Moms, Van Metre Homes, Clyde's Restaurant and WINC-FM.  The EarthDay@Loudoun Family Festival is currently accepting applications for additional event sponsors and exhibitors.
