The O+ (pronounced O positive) festival is a great weekend for a great cause.  Healthcare for those that bring art into our lives.  It's a not for profit organization that connects musicians, artists, health and wellness providers, and the community in a weekend long celebration.

The O+ Festival was started in Kingston back in 2010, and it has become huge.  They now hold O+ Festivals in California and Chicago, and this year they've added one in Poughkeepsie.  Many artists and musicians are without health insurance, which means they have no way to pay for healthcare.  So they often go without.  The O+ festival is a great solution.  Everybody gives what they can, whether it be music, art, or donations.  A win/win situation. People helping people.

The O+ festival is this weekend, October 6 - 8 in Kingston.  There will be bands playing all weekend, artists, yoga and meditation, wellness expos, wellness classes, and so much more.  Come to the O+ Festival and celebrate good music, good art, and good health for everyone.  For all the info, visit their website.
