The City of Rochester commissioned Charles E. Gagnon to create the Peace Fountain in 1988 for downtown Rochester and it was dedicated in June 1989 during Rochesterfest. Thirty years ago, Rochester residents donated to the Peace Fountain as a legacy for their children and grandchildren. On June 22, 2019, the Charles E. Gagnon Museum and Sculpture Garden celebrated the 30th Birthday of the Peace Fountain on the first day of Rochesterfest.
