The Peace Games are held every August at Washburn Fair Oaks Park, 200 24th St. E, located across the street from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Participants learn about Minneapolis' diverse cultures through dance, art, music, sports and snacks. This program is a partnership with MPRB's Youthline program, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and many neighborhood organizations.

Past celebrations have featured Hmong Butterfly dancers, Filipino Tinikeling, Mexico Lindo dancers and African dancers. Activities includes India Henna Painting, Chinese Calligraphy (translating names into Chinese), soccer, Thai dancing, rugby and Kufi Hat making.
