The Festival for Peace, Prosperity, and the Planet will be held 11am to 6pm Saturday, September 21, 2013 at the “Special Events Pavilion” in Centennial Park. That’s in the northwest corner of the park, near the airplane and the locomotive (see green arrow on the map linked here). Admission to this event is FREE. We’ll have speakers, music, exhibitors, and vendors. Come rain or shine — we have a roof!

Speakers will include David Swanson (peace writer), Hector Black (advocate for peace and forgiveness), Paki Wieland (Gaza flotilla, Raging Grannies), Linnet Overton (Community Food Advocates), and Diane Wilson (Code Pink). Musical performances will include MD & Cobalt Blue, Danny Salazar, the Shelby Bottom String Band, and others. We’re still looking for exhibitors and vendors; contact Eric Schechter ( regarding those, or regarding other aspects of the festival.

(There will also be a fundraiser dinner on the preceding evening, at the Nashville Peace and Justice Center, to help pay for the festival.)

Information for vendors / exhibitors:  In most cases, vendors and exhibitors will need to supply their own tables, chairs, and (optional but strongly recommended) tents. All we’re providing is a space, 10 feet by 10 feet. Spaces are reserved if you’ve notified us in advance that you’re coming; anyone else takes a chance on space not being available. Fee, payable to Nashville Peace and Justice Center, is $20 for food vendors, $15 for other vendors, and free for nonprofits. Our audience will be arriving around 11am, so we hope you can unload your vehicle and remove it from the area by 10am.
