The Peace & Friendship Festival is held each year in mid-February in Sonoyta, Sonora Mexico. It began as a way for our neighbors in Mexico who are unable to cross into the United States for the International Day of Peace to experience the same kind of celebration. The Festival has grown since its inception in 2011, and now includes a parade through town as well as music, dance, performances, and food vendors. Each year a caravan of cars from Ajo travels to Sonoyta for the Festival.

The Peace & Friendship Festival is supported by ISDA in collaboration with the Mayor’s Office, DIF, and COBACH in Sonoyta, Sonora Mexico.
