Peace Fair

Since 1985 Ploughshares Calgary has hosted an annual peace fair on a Saturday in November. The fair has a social justice focus; groups and individuals that are vendors at the fair have items for sale that are either fair-trade or the income from the sale of their items primarily goes to support social justice projects in the areas of peace, development, anti-poverty or the environment.




Singing for Peace

Ploughshares Calgary hosts an annual fall fundraising concert that features talented local musicians, a refreshment intermission, and always includes some favourite peace songs.
