There will be a Peace Festivalon Sunday 29 April 2018, at 15:00 in the Wiener Stadthalle. The organizers expect an audience of 10,000 from over 40 nations throughout Europe and as far away as Japan and the USA.

Festival organizer Dr. Michael Balcomb, chairman of the Family Federation for World Peace – Europe and Middle East explains:  “we are very happy to announce the coming of the Peace Starts with Me Festival to the famous Wiener Stadthalle, which celebrates its 60th Anniversary this year. The festival has previously been held with great success in prestigious venues around the world such as Madison Square Garden, New York; the World Cup Stadium, Seoul; the Olympic Tennis Center, Tokyo, and the Impact Arena in Bangkok.

Our keynote speaker, Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, is a tireless advocate for peace and reconciliation. Founder of the SunHak Peace Prize, she has supported initiatives for refugees, access to education for women and girls, food security, supporting marriage and family, and protecting the environment. Her hope is that we will be uplifted and transformed today. Our lives and our actions will make a difference when we live for the sake of others.

We have some great entertainment including the Longfield Gospel Choir, which is Vienna’s largest; the Attraction shadow dance team from Budapest, past winners of Britain’s Got Talent; Serbian star Nevena Božović; multiple Grammy-winning artist Yolanda Adams from the United States, and more. So don’t just sit there: get up on your feet, and tell the world- that “Peace Starts with Me.”
