(KMOV.com) – Michael Brown’s parents will be attending this year’s Peacefest in Forest Park Sunday. 

Trayvon Martin's father, Tracy Martin, is also scheduled to attend the event. 
 
Church leaders are calling on people all over the St. Louis area to join together for a peaceful celebration.
 
Emily Rau spoke with James Clark of Better Family Life who said his commitment to peace is more important now than ever before. 
 
Clark said he is not worried about violent protesters potentially causing trouble at Peacefest. He said organizers are in touch with police and they do have a plan in place. 
 
People of all ages are welcome and attendees can look forward to music, food, and games at the event. 
Organizers estimate about 3,000 people came to Peacefest last year and they say this year they expect many more.
