Peace Week Delaware will be expanded to nine days: September 15–23

The third annual Peace Week Delaware will be held from Sept. 15 – 23, 2018. The event has been expanded to nine days — including two full weekends — because of the large number of events expected. In 2017, sixty events were held across the state. Peace Week will again be held in conjunction with International Peace Day, which is Friday, Sept. 21.

The Steering Committee for Peace Week has already begun meeting. It’s looking for new volunteers to manage a variety of tasks. If you’re interested in helping to organize the overall Peace Week Delaware effort, email

Meetings in Wilmington are held bi-weekly at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church on Broom St. Additional committees will be forming in Kent and Sussex counties this spring.
