Columbus – June 2017 – Comfest

Held in Goodale Park in Columbus, Comfest is a community festival that according to their website is guided by the principals that people ought to work for the collective good of all people rather than for personal gain; The basic necessities of life are a right and not a privilege; People should strive to conduct their lives in harmony with the environment; We recognize that there are primary attitudes which divide and oppress people – We seek to eliminate these attitudes (they are actually longer – check their website for full details)

The festival is full of crafts, music, various groups making various political statements, and thousands of people having a good time – easily the highlight are the people. Another highly recommended event.
