9th Annual Miami Peace Festival pays tribute to Haiti
(MIAMI, Florida) Saturday, August 14, 2010 marks the 9th Annual Miami Peace Festival. Each year, between 7th and 10th Avenue on the historic Martin Luther King Boulevard (northwest 62nd Street), the streets of the City of Miami are transformed as a symbol of peace. Individuals travel from all region of the nation to take part in this historic event.
The Miami Peace Fest is world renowned for its music. Upcoming artists and highly recognized famous faces, visit the Miami Peace Fest to perform on stage. Talent is confirmed by mid-July and a list of performers is then posted on the website. Artist such as Rick Ross, Flo’Rida, Black Dada, Trina, and several others are scheduled to perform. All artists are required to perform clean and music of a conscious nature. This year’s festival is hosted by Def Jam recording artist Nas. Over the course of his career, Nas has been categorized as a lyrically in-touched hip-hop socialist. The organizers are ecstatic to have such icon to represent the Miami Peace Festival.
To add to the musical segment, the vendors of the Miami Peace Fest provide a variety of foods from different cultures are represented. From griot, arroz con pollo, conch salad, jerk chicken, just to name a few, are some of the many culture dishes that our vendors supply. Food is an element that has the ability to bring gaps between cultures and indifference. In conjunction with the performers, and the activities that surround the Miami Peace Fest, our vendors hold a significant role in the overall success.
This year’s festival will continue in the ongoing Haiti Relief efforts. As of the monstrous natural disaster to occur in Port au Prince, Haiti, the nation is still striving to help rebuild the Caribbean island. Organizers will be accepting can good donations to support the efforts. In addition, the annual candle light vigil will be the most heartfelt since the beginning of the festival. This moment will be dedicated those lost in tragedy as well as to violence.

The Miami Peace Festival, formerly the "Peace in the Hood Festival", was created by Demetrius Allen of the Urban Garden Foundation, in honor of DJ Uncle Al. In 2007 the festival's name changed to the Miami Peace Festival to broaden the movement in urban communities towards non-violence and peace.
The Urban Garden Foundation is involved in year-round activities that promote non-violence among the urban youth. The festival promotes a positive message and is a spin-off to The Urban Youth Year-Round activities such as Youth and Peace conferences. The 8th Annual Miami Peace Fest last year, was a huge success! Over 10,000 people from all over South Florida came out to show their support for Miami's Peace Movement.
