This June marks the 30th anniversary of the annual Winnipeg Walk for Peace. We’re planning to continue the tradition of this annual walk and celebrate it with a Peace Festival at Winnipeg’s Vimy Ridge Park.
The theme for this years march is the UNESCO Manifesto for a culture of Peace and Non-violence, a statement that has been signed by more than 75 million people.
This will be a day long affair, with food, entertainment and activities for the whole family. We are pleased to have a special guest speakers this year, Jean Béliveau, who for the past 11 years, has been conducting a World Wide Walk for Peace and Children. He’s on the home stretch of his epic journey and will share his experiences with us on June 18.
