The Lenape Nation of Pennsylvania and the Bachmann Players of Easton will open the Peace Fair in Lahaska on September 21st with a ceremony “to heal the land” and a historical reenactment from the early days of Bucks County. Their stop at the Peace Fair is part of a “Walking Purchase Journey” that will take them from the Wrightstown Quaker Meetinghouse to the “Bond Farm” in the town of Jim Thorpe, commemorating the deceptive take-over of Indian land by William Penn’s heirs in 1737.
Now in its 20th year, the Peace Fair showcases the valuable work being done by Bucks area non-profits. The fair offers live music, standard and vegetarian food, kids’ games, dozens of crafts vendors and a host of activities for young and old.
The Peace Fair is organized and funded by Bucks area Quakers. Admission is free and the fair is handicapped accessible. Further information can be found at www.peacefair.org, and on the Peace Fair Facebook page.
