Friends of Peace Pilgrim Events

Our Friends in New Jersey host several annual events to celebrate the life and legacy of Peace Pilgrim. You can find updated information on these events at or contact us. 

POTLUCK for PEACE: The annual summer event has been hosted for 10 years by Peace Pilgrim's sister, Helene Young. 

PEACE PILGRIM CELEBRATION WEEKEND: Held in Peace Pilgrim's namesake park in her birth town of Egg Harbor City, NJ, the weekend celebration has been planned for the last decade in conjunction with the International Day of Peace. The event features an intergenerational peace walk, morning yoga, a drumming circle, music, peace-related vendors, an interfaith spiritual service and more. 

PEACE PILGRIM RETREAT: Held annually in the fall, the weekend retreat is near the Appalachian Trail in northern New Jersey. Hikes, silent contemplation and shared meal preparations in a rustic cabin offer an opportunity for rejuvenation, connection and inner peace.
