Mark your Calendar! The Eleventh Annual Piedmont Earth Day Fair will be held on Saturday, April 23, 2016 from 10 am to 5 pm at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds.
The Piedmont Earth Day Fair is the largest Earth Day celebration and one-day environmental education event in the region. Thanks to the support of our sponsors and community partners, the Piedmont Earth Day Fair is a FREE event including free parking, free admission, free activities and free entertainment throughout the day. Program partners will provide workshops and demonstrations throughout the day, and many activities will be geared toward inspiring and engaging children in learning about sustainability.
The theme of the 2016 Piedmont Earth Day Fair is “Eat. Drink. Think.” aimed at educating the public on the importance of supporting sustainable food systems. In the simplest terms, the term Sustainable Food Systems means the production of food, fiber, plant or animal products using farming practices that protect the environment, public health, communities and animal welfare. This form of agriculture enables us to produce healthful food that's good for our bodies and the environment and doesn't compromise future generations' ability to do the same.
