The World Peace Festival of Cincinnati & No. Kentucky will be held this Saturday, October 1st.  It is a music and art celebration of the United Nations “International Day of Peace.”  This local event takes place at the World Peace Bell (425 York St., Newport, KY 41071) from 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm.

Like the Olympic games, this festival serves as a cry for solidarity for a more just and peaceful world.  The theme of this year’s festival is “Peace is a Human Right.”  In an effort to promote a more peaceful world, the festival gathers diverse ethnic groups from our larger community to celebrate and honor our unique gifts.

Our local World Peace Festival is a family-friendly event which includes:

  • Activities for Kids
  • Pizza and Ethnic Foods
  • Tai-chi and Yoga
  • Live band
  • Meditation
  • Cultural Dances and Music
  • Storytelling
  • Fair Trade Merchandise

Community Friends Meeting will have a table set up at the event! Please see the attached flyer for addition details.
