Advancing Unity Through Wellness
One Peace Festival is a single-day all-ages Hip Hop + health and wellness event. The Festival’s purpose is to bring the community together to promote unity in this time of division. Hosted at Campau Park, community members can experience a shared cultural experience. Centered around unity and peaceful dialogue, hip-hop culture is our vehicle.
Edwin Anderson and Matthew “Monk Matthaeus” Duncan, the co-founders of One Peace Festival, grew up on the Southeast side of Grand Rapids. Both are artists and community activists who have a desire to serve the community through love-fueled motivation and intentions.
All Ages Welcome
By promoting health and wellness, we’re advancing hip-hop’s core principles of peace, unity, love, and fun. The festival showcases area musicians, dancers, DJs, and visual artists. We place a large emphasis on all aspects of health and wellness (mind, body, and spirit). The festival encourages businesses and organizations located in the Southtown/Southeast Grand Rapids area to join us!
This year’s One Peace Festival will feature a variety of activities that promote peace, unity, love, fun, and health and support locally-owned BIPOC businesses.
Healthy Foods & Beverages
One Peace Festival will NOT be selling alcohol and will instead focus on healthy foods and beverages.
Promoting Mental Health
Mental health organizations brought in by a mental health team to promote wellness.
Live murals, painted by eight local visual artists, donated to area nonprofits upon their completion.
