Peace Day in the Park

Peace Day in the Park - This Cape Coral festival is a fun way to celebrate peace, with activities and entertainment for the whole family!

International Day of Peace is celebrated on September 21st and the Cape has been having a festival to commemorate it since 2008.

In 2010, Mayor John Sullivan of Cape Coral declared Southwest Florida as the first area in the United States to officially recognize the date. 

For 2014, our peace festival is on the actual date of the commemoration of September 21, from 10AM-6PM.

Our peace festival's mission is to Educate, Unite, and Cultivate in a fun way with a celebration that offers food ...... including vegetarian options ........ prizes, crafts, face painting, doggy fashion show, bee keepers, animal whisperers, local musicians, and performers.

Thousands of people attend the event and learn about different organizations that promote peace, love and happiness ....... shopped for jewelry, clothing, and art ........ had massages, received information about alternative medicine, energy, plus health tips and free samples, and took workshops and classes.

You and your kids can be involved with the entertainment by bringing drums and musical instruments for a drum and dance circle for peace.

People were writing messages on at different stations around the park hoping to send a vibe out to the universe for peace, hope, gratitude and other positive sentiments.

Kids will enjoy seeing the fire truck from the Cape Coral Fire Department, and their parents can help out by donating blood to The Big Red Bus for area hospitals.

Donations such as canned goods are also welcome to help local organizations and charities.

Each year, artist Mary Hansen creates a one-of-a-kind Peace Quilt, which is raffled off along with other prizes.

Admission is free and the festival is held at the lovely Jaycee Park, which is at the eastern end of Beach Pkwy, on the Caloosahatchee River.
