The Awaken Wellness Fair, New York’s “body-mind-spirit-green expo,” will be held at the DoubleTree Hotel in Tarrytown, located at 455 South Broadway, on November 19 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. “This is the fair’s 20th trip to Tarrytown, but it always brings something fresh and new,” says founder Paula Caracappa, CEO of PPC Group. “This autumn, for example, we’ve expanded to a third room of speakers. Yes, the Awaken Wellness Fair is always growing.”

The mission of this holistically focused event is to expose people to a vast array of healthy services and products. Part of its continued success is its comfortable social environment, Caracappa says. “Visitors feel more like they are at a party than an expo. They frequently comment on how warm and inviting the energy is.”

Many people are attracted to the Awaken Wellness Fairs because they’re curious about holistic practices, she says. “They find abundant information encompassing the world of ancient as well as new, cutting-edge healing/wellness methods. Expert speakers present free information all day long about how to awaken to your best self. Often guests come expecting to spend a couple of hours there and end up spending the entire day.”

The fair features an assortment of vendors offering products and services to support a healthy lifestyle, such as essential oils, chiropractic care, nutritional supplements and organic cleaning products. Healing crystals and jewelry are especially popular, Caracappa says, and intuitive readers and holistic healers are always a big part of the event. Among their services (offered for entertainment purposes only) are tarot reading, mediumship, angel reading, numerology and pet readings.

The fair also features energy healers, and as healing practices have grown more mainstream recently, many people “sample” one for the first time at the Awaken Fair, Caracappa says.

Readers and healers will offer discount-rate appointments until November 18 at
