Peace Days exists for all persons who believe in a culture of peace and compassion. The following video gives a brief overview of Peace Days' roots.
Peace Days was inspired by Rotary World Peace Partners in 2010. Peace Days grew out of a desire to celebrate the United Nations' International Day of Peace, designated as September 21st each year.
In 2010, Winnipeg celebrated with a Concert for Peace, where music was the medium to communicate the importance of working toward a more peaceful and compassionate society.
Peace Days evolved, and in 2015 became a two week-long festival with community events spanning from September 11 through to the International Day of Peace on September 21.
This year, from September 11-21, 2018, Peace Days will include a diverse, stimulating program of events throughout Winnipeg to appeal to all ages.
