Founded in 2008, Charleston Peace One Day is a nonprofit organization working toward intercultural cooperation and non-violence. “It is inclusive of a large amount of organizations and people in the community,” says Charleston Peace One Day Program Director Beth Wendt. This year, CP1D’s main goal is to decrease violence by implementing a culture of peace, intercultural cooperation, and non-violence through education, action, art, and other community-building efforts. They network businesses, organizations, and citizens; create education curriculum; and raise local and global awareness of the International Day of Peace through a citywide festival. There’s plenty of talented acts on this year’s roster, including (in order of appearance) folk-rocker Howard Dlugasch, spoken-word artists and local journalist Marcus Amaker, folksy singer/songwriter Lindsay Holler, groove-oriented rock group Po’Ridge, roots/rock band James Justin & Co. (led by songwriter James Justin Burke), and the bluesy and soulful Gaslight Street (with their new brass section, the Rusty Trombones). Charleston Peace One Day festival runs from 12-7 p.m. at the scenic Riverfront Park (at the old Navy Base along Noisette Creek at 1001 Everglades Drive). —T. Ballard Lesemann
