This years weekend-long, O+( “O positive”) Festival in Kingston, NY is scheduled to kickoff at 6:00 this Friday with a parade that starts at the Academy Green and continues all weekend long with live music, dance performances, art exhibits, health and wellness expos, as well as family-oriented events for all ages.
Originally founded in here in Kingston by a small group of local caregivers and artists, the objective of the O+ Festival was to provide a way for local musicians and artists to obtain healthcare services in exchange for their performances and providing art for a community festival. Festival events include dozens of live music performances at numerous venues, dance performances, healthcare expos, and performance artists. In addition, murals are being created at various sites throughout Uptown Kingston by local and well-known artists from all over the country. This year’s Festival has also expanded to include more family-oriented events like a game night at Tech Smith’s Anvil Gallery, a family day at the Academy Green, musical performances suitable for kids and organized bike rides on Sunday starting from Forsyth Park.
All events are open with the purchase of a wristband for $35 at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/kingston-o-festival-2014-tickets-12991432725 or event venues during the festival.
