Nonviolence is a way of being in the world in which liberty is affirmed. It is a choice of action that recognizes equality and celebrates diversity.
The Nonviolence Festival is a project of World Without Wars and Violence
The Nonviolence Festival was initiated by members of the humanist movement in 2005 as a day in the park – community groups, vendors, speakers and musicians came together with the community for a day long fair and concert.
Featuring: community groups, vendors, concerts, speakers, crafts, carnival games, art gallery, food, area of reflection.
The Nonviolence Festival – Day in the Park brings Waterloo Region together to celebrate and advocate nonviolence as a way of being. With great uncertainties in these troubled times, it is good to know that nonviolence is the correct quality of action in all circumstances. The people that contribute to the Day in the Park are helping to lift the voice for the importance of a world of nonviolence.

“The establishment irritates you – pull your beard, flick your face – to make you fight because once they’ve got you violent they know how to handle you. The only thing they don’t know how to handle is non-violence and humour.” -John Lennon
