ComFest in Columbus, also known as Community Festival’s Street Fair, has worked very diligently the past 37 years within the communities. Volunteers play a major role in the festival and help keep things running smoothly.
Location: Goodale Park, (At the Residence House in the middle of Goodale Park – Enter from North Park Street), Columbus, Ohio
This event is about more than being a festival, it is also about living a different way, having compassion, tolerance, thoughtfulness and giving.
ComFest plays a major role in peace and social justice in the state of Ohio. Their views of politics, social relations, art and sexuality are at a different level than corporate sponsored festivals. A description I read was “It’s a Party with a Purpose” and they’re committed to “living authentically with trust in others for at least three days.”
It’s one of the largest, if not the largest, showcase for artists and musicians. This year there will be over 200 performing acts on seven stages. There will also be more vendors this year.
Solar Stage will be expanded this year and include workshops by Ohio Green Living. The workshops will focus on local and healthy food; natural healing and wellness; alternative energy and transportation issues; and green living lifestyle choices.
