Join the Nonviolence Festival on 9 July 2016 from Noon to 5:00pm on Victoria Park Island, Kitchener for the family friendly Day in the Park celebration!

You can visit community group displays to learn about positive things happening in the Kitchener Waterloo community. There will also be local artists and vendors, live music by local artists, food with vegetarian friendly options, and a children’s activities area.

It’s a great way to engage with the community and spend a wonderful Saturday afternoon in the park.

The Nonviolence Festival has been celebrating diversity, peace, and social justice since 2005, making this year’s festival the 12th annual Day in the Park celebration. In a world where we struggle against violence and fear, the Nonviolence Festival focuses on positive ways we can engage with those around us, working for peace and positive relationships. They define Nonviolence as ‘treating others the way you wish to be treated’ and when that principle is applied to our relationships at home, workplace and the world, we build the kind of world in which we want to live.

The Nonviolence Festival’s Day in the Park is one of multiple events held by the group throughout the year that are guided by nonviolence principles. Visit their Facebook page to stay up to date – https://www.facebook.com/The-Non-Violence-Festival-8613247145/.
