"Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal." Martin Luther King, Jr.
A number of great groups are signed up to participate. A full listing coming soon.

Peace, much more than the absence of armed conflict, means building social equality and justice, economic equity, ecological balance; protecting citizens from attack; meeting basic human needs; having the means necessary to settle differences nonviolently; eliminating structural violence; practicing conflict resolution as a foundation for building relationships; and supporting international law, diplomacy, and nonviolent resolution of disputes. The purpose of the peace fair is to engage heads and hearts in realizing that PEACE IS POSSIBLE. Please come and enjoy music, food, art, and enjoyable activities for the whole family.
