About Compassionfest

Compassionfest 2016 was a grand success, and now we're off and running toward Compassionfest 2017! It will be held this summer, Saturday July 22nd, again at "1253", the Whitney Ave Culture Center, Hamden, Connecticut. Be expecting greatness! The mission of this 3nd annual Compassion festival is to unite like-minded people that believe in values of kindness, equity and compassion. In celebration of those principles, we'll gather for delicious natural vegan food and cruelty-free product providers, inspiring speakers, performers and musical acts for a fun community event that everyone can enjoy.  It will be an opportunity to meet local artists, crafters, entrepreneurs, eco-friendly vendors, and learn about new products. Getting bigger with each year, over 50+ Exhibitors.

This is an ALL welcoming, outdoor, kid-friendly event. Open to public. FREE admission. Donations very much appreciated. Be kind, recycle! Keep a look out for Recycling bins around the festival grounds. Please come join the fun and see what your community has to offer!
