Festival of Loss & Healing

May 5, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Festival of Loss and Healing

Please join us on the grounds of City Hall on Saturday, May 5, 2018 from 1-5 pm for our first annual Festival of Loss and Healing. Over 25 community organizations will be there to share their particular experiences of grief and loss.

Loss takes many forms – loss of youth, loss of country, loss of freedom, loss of family, loss of future plans and so on. We hope that sharing our stories will help us to discover that we are more similar than different.

There will be crafts for the whole family commemorating the losses. Or have a hot dog and join a yoga group or a drum circle.

Opening ceremony will be at 1:30 pm. Musical entertainment begins then as well.
