Give Peace a Chance: 38th Annual Tucson Peace Fair

February 23, 2019 11:00 am – 4:00 pm
“This FREE event is Arizona’s largest gathering of Peace, Justice, and Environmental groups. There will be live music, tables, food, entertainment, and children’s activities. Now in Armory Park for the third year!”
Armory Park, 221 S. 6th Avenue (south of Broadway Blvd.), downtown Tucson
Info: Mary or (520) 468-5805
Carolyn’s note:  It’s ironic that the Tucson Peace Fair has moved down to Armory Park, which has numerous statues and monuments dedicated to the war dead in America.
Peace be with you.

  1. Hope the temperature warms up today for this annual peace fair. It’s only 30 degrees in the early a.m. probably due to yesterday’s record 2″ snowfall (on the ground) in Tucson. It was indeed quiet and lovely around midtown. Enjoy this festival today and work towards peace in the world, with your neighbors and others. I hear cases in Small Claims Court and these are indeed people in conflict, who often hate each other.
    UPDATE: Spent 2 hours at the peace fair, checking out the social justice/environmental/peace booths, plus listening to Raging Grannies and One Heart Beat perform. Mayoral candidates Regina Romero has a table and Steve Farley petitions are circulating, along with booths with LD 9 Rep. Pam Powers Hannley, the Green Party, the Democratic Party, and Bernie in 2020.
