Easy parking and extended hours make this a great family event.  Come learn more about composting, energy efficiency, recycling, protecting our water quality, and much more!

Kernersville also invites you to create a work of Art for Earth in honor of its celebration. The Town will display submitted works of art, and a winner will be announced as part of the festivities.
