Our History

In 2005, a small group of friends joined together to host a family-friendly Earth Day celebration in Winston-Salem. The first Piedmont Earth Day Fair was so successful that the fair's organizing committee formed Piedmont Environmental Alliance, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the Piedmont Triad community on environmental issues.

During the following decade, PEA has grown the Piedmont Earth Day Fair into the largest one-day environmental education event in the region and become a leading regional source for information and inspiration on the environment. PEA brings together people, organizations, businesses, schools, and government agencies toward the common goal of building a more environmentally sustainable community.

Today, PEA is an established and growing presence in the community, with innovative, high-impact programs and dynamic, engaging events.
