Natural Awakenings New York City

Free Body-Mind-Spirit Expo in NYC

AWF July expoThe Awaken Wellness Fair, our area’s oldest body-mind-spirit-green expo, will return to New York City on July 31—and this year, admission is free. The fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Gold Ballroom of the Hotel Pennsylvania (enter on West 33rd Street) at 401 Seventh Avenue.

For 14 years, this wellness-focused, educational and experiential event has attracted more than 100 exhibitors to locations throughout the tri-state area, growing from 42 visitors at the first fair in 2002 to hundreds in recent years. Over the years, the fair has expanded from one annual event to multiple events in New York City, Tarrytown and Brooklyn, New York, and Fort Lee, New Jersey. But founder Paula Caracappa says the goal remains constant: to educate the public about the variety of wellness services and products that are available today.

Vendors and practitioners will represent a broad range of products and services, from essential oils and Ayurvedic medicine to nutritional supplements, organic cleaning products, and healing crystals and jewelry. Intuitive readers and holistic healers will offer insight (for entertainment purposes only) through tarot reading, mediumship, angel reading, numerology and pet readings, and visitors can “sample” healing practices such as Reiki, reflexology and energy healing. Discounted appointments with readers and healers can be made at
