"Owego to host 1st annual International Day of Peace Festival; Stand for Peace effort on September 21"

On Sept. 21, months of mowing and organizing will come together during Owego’s 1st annual International Day of Peace Festival and “Stand for Peace” event at 100 Elm St. in Owego, N.Y., and at Owego Schoolhouse Antiques. The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

This grassroots effort is free and open to the public, and will feature live entertainment, food vendors, and over 85 antique vendors. The festival has also been sanctioned by the United Nations as an official event.

An invitation is also extended for guests to “Stand for Peace” and form a human peace sign in the field next to the old schoolhouse. The formation will take place at 2 p.m., and will be photographed from the sky.

There will be entertainment outside by the peace sign as well as inside, where guests will also be able to browse through the antiques. The indoor music will take place in the building’s auditorium, which won an award in 1958 for having the best acoustics in America. This is also the same auditorium that Robert Kennedy spoke at while serving as a Senator and during a visit to Owego.

Bands such as Glenmary’s Ghost, Uncle Uku and the Guise, Voodoo Highway, and several more will entertain guests. There will be music throughout the event.

Last week, Jeremiah Harvey, from Glenmary’s Ghost, a jam band out of Owego, talked about their participation in the event and what it means to them.

“I love what it stands for,” said Harvey of the peace effort. “It represents peace, love, and unity in a troubled world.”

The members of Glenmary’s Ghost started playing together in 2015, and then officially formed as a band in 2018. The band performs a variety of Grateful Dead and Phish covers, and plans to bring their energy to the festival on Sept. 21. Glenmary’s Ghost will perform for guests from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Band members include Drew Thomas on lead guitar and backing vocals, Jon Lipka on rhythm guitar and lead vocals, Jake Kurtz on bass, and Jeremiah Harvey on drums and backing vocals.

According to Harvey, they arrived at the band name because they practice on Glenmary Drive in Owego, and they also pay homage to the legend of the ghost at Devil’s Elbow – thus arriving at Glenmary’s Ghost for a band name.

Harvey stated that they have all played jam music, and now that they have been playing it together, it just comes naturally.

“We played as friends in 2015, and in 2018 we started to take things seriously,” Harvey added, stating that they plan to bring a lot of peaceful energy to the event. - Owego Pennysaver
