Rock to Rock is New Haven’s biggest Earth Day celebration. Here’s how it works: You and about a thousand of your neighbors travel from West Rock and East Rock, with celebrations on both sides of the city. The ride kicks off from Common Ground (West Rock) and ends at East Rock Park. Along the way, eat tasty food, hear great music, take on environmental service projects, and explore our city’s parks and neighborhoods. Learn more »
