Awaken Wellness Fair Returns to Tarrytown in October: Body-Mind-Spirit-Green Expo

Awaken Fair shoppers and vendors at the Fair

The Awaken Wellness Fair, a body-mind-spirit-green expo, will be held in the grand ballroom of the DoubleTree Hotel in Tarrytown from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on October 30. This is the 15th year for the event, which attracts more than 100 exhibitors to locations throughout the Tri-State area.

“The fair has grown from 42 people at our first event in 2002 to hundreds of people in recent years, and it has expanded from one annual event to multiple events, including New York City, Tarrytown, Brooklyn, and Fort Lee, New Jersey. But the goal remains constant: educating the public about the variety of wellness services and products that are available today,” says founder Paula Caracappa.

Among the many experts scheduled to speak at the fair are keynote speakers Roland Comtois, a spiritual medium and the author of And Then There Was Heaven, and Hollister Rand, also a spiritual medium and the author of I’m Not Dead, I’m Different. Vendors will be on hand to explain and demonstrate a variety of products and services to support a healthy lifestyle, ranging from essential oils and nutritional supplements to organic cleaning products, as well as a wide range of crystals and jewelry.

Intuitive readers and holistic healers are a big part of the expo, Caracappa notes. “This group offers insight through Tarot reading, mediumship, angel reading, numerology, pet readings and many more, for entertainment purposes only. The gifted healers practice reiki, reflexology and energy healing. Healing practices have become more and more mainstream recently, and many people sample a healing practice for the first time at the Awaken Fair.” Discounted appointments can be made with readers and healers online at
