5th Annual Peace in the Park Honors Summer of Love Anniversary

On September 23, the 5th annual Peace in the Park festival comes to the Music Concourse in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, and features world music and visual artists, tai chi and hatha yoga, seminars, crafts, exhibits by local nonprofits and meditation experiences. The Peace in the Park festival brings together our diverse Bay Area community and invites participants to unplug and explore activities of peace and happiness in a fun, inspiring and healthy atmosphere.

This year’s theme is “Summer of Love,” to mark the 50th anniversary of a legendary chapter in San Francisco’s history. To honor the spirit of that summer, Peace in the Park has invited numerous artists, scientists, peace makers and policy makers in the Bay Area, who will demonstrate how to nurture peace and happiness, even while living in a fast-paced, urban environment.

The festival is offered free of charge by event organizer Brahma Kumaris, and by a coalition of organizations that includes San Francisco Parks Alliance, Institute of Noetic Sciences, United Religions Initiative, Creative Canopy, Interfaith Center at the Presidio and San Francisco Vegetarian Society.

Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual Organization seeks to help individuals rediscover and strengthen their inherent worth by encouraging and facilitating a process of spiritual awakening. Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University currently operates over 8,500 centers in 110 countries around the world.
