Piedmont Earth Day Fair this Saturday!

I have volunteered at this event the past three years. I always learn something there. My kids LOVE the fun activities and getting their Earth Day passport stamped as they complete each activity and come home with all kinds of crafts they made - handmade paper, bird feeders, planted seeds, newspaper plant pots, etc. 

The 2011 Piedmont Earth Day Fair will be held this Saturday, April 16, 2011, at the Dixie Classic Fair Grounds in Winston-Salem. Founded by Piedmont Environmental Alliance (PEA), the Piedmont Earth Day Fair is the Triad’s largest Earth Day event. Now in its 6th consecutive year, the Fair promotes environmental stewardship through practical life applications. Over 8,000 attended the 2010 Fair at Wake Forest University. 

The 2011 Earth Day Fair will offer over 125 exhibits, demonstrations on "green" topics, an interactive childen's program and children's entertainment, live music all day long, all-natural food and drinks for sale, and much more. It's a planet party!

Over 8,000 attended the 2010 Earth Day Fair.

WEATHER UPDATE: The Piedmont Earth Day Fair will go on as scheduled this Saturday but will be held indoors, in the Education Building at the Dixie Classic Fairgrounds, due to forecasted inclement weather. We will still offer the same great exhibits, live music, children’s activities, demonstrations and food that we would have offered outside. Enter off Deacon Boulevard through Gate 5. FREE Parking. SEE YOU AT THE FAIR!

Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Buy This Earth Day Fair Tee!

9.  The fabric was produced in North Carolina
8.  The tees were sewn in a facility that provides safe conditions and pays fair wages, either in the U.S. or in Honduras
7.  The fabric is very soft -- it's so comfortable this tee will stay at the top of your pile
6.  The tees were screen-printed locally, near Winston-Salem, using water based inks
5.  The tees are provided locally by Eretz Design, a brand new environmentally minded T-shirt company based in Winston-Salem

1.  It's a party for the planet, you need to dress for the occasion!
I can speak from experience. I have the 2010 and 2009 T-shirts and they are SUPER soft! And I agree that the Ladies' sizes run at least one size small, so order up!

  1. sweet! I like the Tee. We are having an Earth Day celebration here, too. I hope to take the girls, but that day is full of other stuff. Grrr! Seriously, we have to get together!
