Peace fest features music, shops, more
The Fall Peace Festival will be held Saturday in the Hall of Mirrors at the Civic Center Music Hall.
The free, annual event will feature 60 tables with information from Oklahoma groups working in social justice, human service, human rights and environmental sustainability. This year’s theme is “everything for the common good.”
A number of organizations will have goods for sale, including books, calendars and T-shirts. Live music, ranging from folk and reggae to Latino and African styles, will be performed by local musicians during the festival, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Two Oklahoma-based nonprofits will sell handcrafted and imported fair trade goods that fund educational projects in Africa. “Pambe Ghana” and “Out of Africa” offer exotic carvings, pottery, jewelry, fabrics and clothing.
The family-friendly festival will also include a children’s activity room adjacent to the hall, where arts and crafts, poster-making and nonviolent games will be available to children.
