Awaken Wellness Fair Has Party Vibe

The Awaken Wellness Fair, which returns to Tarrytown March 26, has long been billed as “our area’s best-loved body-mind-spirit-green expo.” There’s plenty to be learned at this event, but the vibe is far more social than educational, notes Awaken Fairs founder Paula Caracappa.

“While expo is a word associated with such events, this one is a party—no walls separating people. It’s wide open, with lots of friendly interaction.”

Since 2002, this wellness-focused, experiential event has attracted more than 100 exhibitors to locations throughout the tri-state area, expanding from one annual event to multiple events in New York City, Tarrytown, Brooklyn, and Fort Lee, New Jersey.

While attendance has grown from 42 people at the first Awaken Fair to hundreds of people in recent years, the goal remains constant: introducing people to the variety of wellness services and products available in our area today.

This year’s fair in Tarrytown will take place March 26, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., in the Grand Ballroom of the DoubleTree Hotel at 455 South Broadway. Keynote speaker Kacey Morabito Grean of WHUD Radio will present “Life Lessons,” discussing what she’s learned in her 30-year broadcasting career.
