Michael Franti and Guerrilla Managment, producers of San Francisco's Power to the Peaceful Festival today announced that the anticipated 2011 event will be rescheduled for 2012. The festival will return annually thereafter.

After 12 years, the free music, arts and action event has grown into an international destination experience incorporating a weekend of concerts, yoga, dj's, action sports, environmental & social justice organizations and workshops with last year's event attended by more than 80,000.

In 2012 we will be transforming the festival into a celebration of the multi-cultural heritage of the Bay Area, returning to Golden Gate Park, bigger and better than ever.

"In this time of great change in the world, I can't think of a better way to celebrate peace than by bringing the music, food and culture of our diverse community all into one place. After 12 years of staging the festival, we've decided to take a breather in 2011 so we can put all of our energy into make the festival the most inspiring it can be in 2012!"

Power to the Peaceful  is a 501c3 non-profit organization who's mission is to inspire people to bring about peace by giving back to the world and our communities.
