NEW in 2023: the Healing Arts Fair !

We're excited to announce Tom Tom's first ever, Healing Arts Fair. On Saturday April 22 from 1pm - 4pm, come meet practitioners, artists, and craftspeople who bring to life consciousness, community healing, healthy living, plant and alternative medicine.

The Tom Tom Healing Arts Fair, which is presented in collaboration with Common Grounds and other community supporters, is a celebration of the diversity, healing, and artistic expression of our community. The Fair will weave all the elements of the Conscious City conference (Wed 4/19) into an immersive, memorable experience.

The Healing Arts Fair is a new initiative to be held during the 11th Annual Tom Tom Festival during our Downtown Mall Block Party. The Fair will occur on the Downtown Mall and on an adjoining side street.

For the 11th Annual Tom Tom Festival, our FUTURE FORWARD theme will lead us into a dialogue on the present, and the ways that embracing mindfulness, meditation, and other healing modalities can prepare us to create a brighter tomorrow.
