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 2023 was scheduled to take place at the Halifax Central Library from 1:00 to 5:00 pm on Saturday, September 16, however due to Hurricane Lee we have decided to postpone Peace Halifax and proceed with an online Concert for Peace. Join us on Saturday, September 16 at 4pm Atlantic time for an online concert in the eye of the storm, featuring acclaimed jazz artist Denzal Sinclaire. Just click the link and join us online! 

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.
