Event Description

The year was 1982. Against the backdrop of the escalating nuclear arms race, 170 different groups cooperated to create Vancouver's first Walk for Peace. 35,000 people gathered that first year, then 65,000 in 1983, and by 1984 it was 100,000. We gathered at Kitsilano Beach forming a river of people that poured over Burrard Bridge to a concert stage at Sunset Beach. It was magnificent.

Now it's 2012, the 30th anniversary: time for all of us, together.

Saturday, June 30, gather at noon at Kits Beach [exact location TBA] to walk across the Burrard Street Bridge to Sunset Beach in the West End. Celebration at Sunset Beach featuring music, speakers, and food to begin at 2 p.m.

This event is 100% free and everyone is welcome - invite your friends!
