When anyone asks us what is so great about Columbus, we undoubtedly point to the free three-day party that happens smack dab in the middle of our city every year. ComFest is a major part of our city’s collective identity, the one time of year that we put aside our differences and party—a bipartisan celebration of friendship, music, activism, art, dance, beer, and meat on a stick. You don’t have to be a patchouli soaked, hacky sackin’ hippy to enjoy the fruits of ComFest, just an open mind and the willingness to share an amazing communal experience with Columbus.
