The International Peace Festival, a two-day, family-friendly event in Ithaca, New York, is designed to welcome people from throughout our community to a celebration of international peace, while helping to raise funds that support the organization's peace and justice related activities. Through music, crafts, food, activities and hospitality, we embrace and celebrate the community of Tompkins County and our global community.
There will be an assortment of international foods, art and craft vendors, beer and wine tent, special activities for kids and adults, our unique Elegant White Elephant Sale, a silent auction, and peace Masses.
The two-day festival is open to the public. The purchase of a festival button for only $5 is encouraged as admission to the event.
“The mission of St. Catherine of Siena parish is to inspire, engage, and nurture our community through worship, witness and service,” said Father Joe Marcoux. “Proceeds from the event will help support our mission of working for peace and justice in our local community and our broader world community.”
He adds that examples of programs supported by the festival last year are Musicians for World Harmony (Music Heals), the Rotary Foundation, Loaves and Fishes, and St. Catherine’s sister parish, St. Anthony of Padua in Monte Plata, the Dominican Republic.
