Peace Day is a celebration of the United  Nations International Day of Peace.  The Tofino event is an important part of a world wide happening on Peace Day. The Free public event to be held in the Tofino Village Green from 12:00 noon to 9:00 p.m. features 6 bands, speakers on peace and peaceful protest, a choral presentation and a dance presentation, artists displaying their work, food and non-alcoholic refreshment will be available.

The event will be opened by our Mayor John Fraser, and features special guest speaker and publisher of Common Ground magazine, Joseph Roberts.  The Friends of Clayoquot Sound will be playing an important and instrumental role at Peace Day, which celebrates our right to peaceful protest.  The event will be videotaped and streamed live to the internet on UStreaam.  (There is a link to the video stream on the webpage: http://www.peacedaytofino.com.)

There will be a crowd video moment at 7:45 P.M.  when the audience will assemble into a peace sign and light candles for the “Circle of Peace” movement.  This video will be uploaded as “Tofino Peace Sign”.  The Peace Day schedule is now posted and final.
