A carnival of peace

The 14th annual How Weird Street Faire takes place Sunday April 28, 2013 from Noon to 8pm in downtown San Francisco, centered at Howard and 2nd Streets. This year's theme is "Weirdi Gras: A Carnival of Peace".

The How Weird Street Faire is our experiment in creating peace, and a fundraiser for the World Peace Through Technology Organization. It has brought many different types of people together to celebrate peace. It has let people experience the reality of a place where cooperation is favored over competition, where diversity is celebrated, and where people can see that our differences are far fewer than our similarities. The How Weird Street Faire has made learning the foundations of peace fun and exciting.

For its 14th year, there will be 13 city blocks of art and celebration, including many stages of world-class performances and electronic music, marching bands, food and drinks, vendors from around the world selling unique and creative wares, and non-profit organizations to educate and inspire. Filling in the faire will be performance artists, thousands of people in colorful costumes dancing in the streets, and more parades than any street fair in the world.
