The ever-popular Awaken Wellness Fair returns to Westchester on Sunday, November 3, 2013 from 10am to 5pm at the Doubletree Hotel in Tarrytown, NY. The area’s oldest body-mind-spirit-green expo outside of New York City attracts thousands of visitors and hundreds of exhibitors each year.


This educational and experiential event offers visitors a chance to sample and learn about products and services for vibrant living. “Many people are only aware of the allopathic route to health, which often suggests that we ‘take a pill’ for physical challenges,” says Awaken Wellness Fair founder and organizer Paula Caracappa. “This event attracts people who are curious about holistic practices, both ancient and cutting-edge, and the variety of healing and wellness methods that exist today.”  


The expo features presentation rooms with 45-minute talks throughout the day. One room will focus on the scientific, while the other leans toward the metaphysical. Another area will hold more than a dozen intuitive readers, while gifted healers practice in yet another room. Appointments with readers and healers can be made in advance after purchasing a ticket at AwakenToYourBestSelf.com/Tickets.html.    


The Awaken Wellness Fair also features vendors offering the latest products and services to support a healthy lifestyle. Vendor and speaker opportunities are still available at
