Tucson Annual Peace Fair 2023
“The annual Tucson Peace Fair and Music Festival is the largest gathering of peace, social justice, environmental, and labor groups in the State of Arizona. The 2023 Peace Fair will take place on February 25, the last Saturday in February, from 11:00AM to 4:00PM in Armory Park”(222 S. 5th Avenue).
Carolyn’s note: Ironic to hold this annual peace fair in Armory Park, south of Broadway Blvd. which contains numerous wartime historical monuments (Spanish American War, WWI, WWII). Coming up the day before on Feb. 24, 2023 is the 1st year anniversary of the recent Russian invasion of Ukraine, so this is a timely festival. Give peace a chance.
