Peace and justice fair returns to Vancouver
Sunday, September 4, 2011
The eighth annual Peace and Justice Fair will be Saturday at Esther Short Park.
The free, nonpartisan festival features information booths from a wide variety of local community groups, from churches and nonprofit service providers to social justice advocates and even private businesses interested in pursuing a more peaceful world.
There’s live music on the main stage, costumed re-enactors portraying historic peacemakers, children’s games and activities. New this year is an ecological T-shirt transformation service: Your old T-shirt can be changed into a reusable shopping bag while you wait.
The fair is set for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Esther Short Park, downtown Vancouver. Admission is free. For more information, visit http://vancouverpeaceandjusticefair.org.
