World-Changing Kids runs an awesome annual Kids Love Peace festival as part of the Ottawa Peace Festival – a two-day community building event for families with recreational activities, music and art.
This festival takes place over two Saturdays at the end of September.
In 2017, we held the two days in two different parks – Sandalwood Park and Fairlea Park. We chose these two parks because they are in communities where there are a lot of newcomers and English is the second language for many of the families. Many of these children do not get the opportunity to attend the other festivals held around Ottawa, due to language and financial barriers, so we wanted to bring a fun festival to their backyards. Kids Love Peace is also open to all families in Ottawa … which provides a great opportunity for the children who live in these communities to have a leadership role in the activities. Welcoming kids from other areas of the city into their parks will help build the pride they feel for their communities.
Stay tuned for more info on Kids Love Peace 2018!
