Earth Hour 2019: The City Turns Off Its Lights for One Hour | SF

Saturday, March 30, 2019 - 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm | Cost: FREE
San Francisco Bay Area |


Join environmentally conscious people all over the globe by turning off your lights for one hour on Saturday night and instead light candles, or simply enjoy the dark of the night.

Starting as a symbolic lights out event in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour has grown to be the world’s largest action for climate change. From the Eiffel Tower to the Empire State Building, and the Bird’s Nest stadium to Burj Khalifa, thousands of landmarks will switch off their lights in solidarity for the planet.

On Saturday, March 24 at 8:30 pm local time, skylines around the world will go dark as millions celebrate WWF’s Earth Hour to spark global awareness and action on nature and the environment.

In a show of support, the University of San Francisco, and Ghirardelli Square, along with dozens of buildings and monuments around the world will turn off their non-essential lighting for one hour.

Participation is easy. By flipping off your lights at 8:30 pm local time, you will be making the switch to a cleaner, more secure nation and prosperous America.

Earth Hour 2019
Saturday, March 30, 2019 | 8:30-9:30 pm
> RSVP on Facebook to show your support

For the past 10 years, people around the world have come together every Earth Hour to support efforts to tackle climate change. And, together, we have created a powerful movement that helped deliver strong global commitments to tackling this threat.
Climate change remains a big challenge for us all. But another urgent threat now demands our attention: the loss of nature. These two combined threats mean we must act – and now.
