Arbor Day Celebration


When J. Sterling Morton founded Arbor Day back in 1872, his idea was simple - set aside a special day for tree planting. The City of Belmont and the Town of Cramerton are proud to continue this tradition at our 2019 Arbor Day Festival. Come celebrate our leafy friends and all things green with us!

The festival will be held at the Kevin Loftin Riverfront Park on April 6, 2019 from 12:00 - 3:00 pm.
