The Peace Fair is a family-friendly event organized by local Quaker meetings and showcases area organizations whose focus is peace, community service, healthy living, education and the environment.
This year's Peace Fair will be held on September 21st, 10:30AM to 4PM. September 21st is also the International Day of Peace and marks the 90th consecutive year that a fair has been held on the grounds of Buckingham Friends Meeting!
There are more than 100 tables and booths of crafts, artwork, non-competitive games, animals, and local non-profits like the Peace Center, Bucks Learning Cooperative, A Woman’s Place, and Camp Onas, among many others.
Visitors will hear entertainers like the Tookany Creek bluegrass band, River Drivers and kids' songster Ecoman. They can peruse the used book sale, listen to Bucks and Montgomery County poet laureates at the Poetry Reading, or visit the Heritage Tent, where local families highlight the various nationalities of their emigrant ancestors. There is a food court with vegetarian/vegan options, and visitors can tour the historic Buckingham Meetinghouse, a National Landmark.
The Peace Fair is supported by grants from Bucks Quarter and Buckingham Friends Meeting, as well as vendor fees and visitor donations. In addition, 60-70 members of the Bucks Quarter community volunteer each year to help plan and run the fair, which is handicap-accessible for visitors, vendors and volunteers.
Parking is free.
