Fun for the Whole Family at the Piedmont Earth Day Fair!
You are invited to a fun and educational community celebration at the annual Piedmont Earth Day Fair. The festival, hosted by local non-profit organization Piedmont Environmental Alliance (PEA), is packed with family-friendly activities and demonstrations, great food and music, artwork, and interesting exhibits. This is all free to the public!
Top Notch Children’s Activities
The fair offers a range of activities for kids, including arts & crafts, live animals and insects, face-painting, and yoga. Don’t miss the Kids Zone, which features special activities hosted by Kaleideum, the Forsyth County Public Libraries, and other favorite organizations.
Eco Art Contest with Prizes
School-aged children are encouraged to participate in the Earth Day Fair Art Contest. Students sign up online to bring artwork to the fair that expresses their connection to Earth Day. Artwork will be displayed around the fair and seen by thousands of people. A panel of community judges will award prizes (by age group) in the afternoon.
Demos, Free Shopping, Music, and More!
Learn practical tips and information for living a more environmentally sustainable lifestyle – including how to start composting, backyard bee-keeping, and natural gardening. At the Swap Shop, attendees can trade gently used books, jewelry and clothing and receive new (to you) items for free. And, throughout the day, enjoy music from your favorite local musicians.
Environmental Education for All Ages
Fairgoers will experience Piedmont Environmental Alliance’s innovative education programs live at the fair. Ride the Energy Explorers bike to learn about energy use and conservation. Interact with the PEA Stream Table and learn why Every Drop Counts. Check out the Live Debate tent to hear high school students from across the Piedmont discuss the pros and cons of eating meat.
With more than 100 earth-friendly vendors and exhibitors, fun and interactive programs for kids and adults, live music, delicious food, local artwork, and the Piedmont Earth Day Fair has something for everyone.
