Peace Halifax is a day-long festival offered as a gift to the people of Halifax in honour of the United Nations International Day of Peace.

Peace Halifax 2022 was resccheduled after Hurricane Fiona and will take place on Sunday, October 30. After two years of mostly online events, and after a prolonged period of instability and isolation, we are looking forward to being together one again in Halifax’s beautiful Central Library.

To learn more, see our schedule below.

Peace Halifax was created by Brahma Kumaris Halifax in 2015 and is celebrated on the third Saturday in September at the Halifax Central Library. The event includes a Concert for Peace, featuring incredible artists from around the world.
