Media Inquiries

Thank you for your interest in Community Festival. Unfortunately, it is not possible to accommodate media requests for interviews with an official spokesperson once this volunteer-run event moves into its operational stage.

Please note that:

  1. Outside the context of previously arranged interviews with designated spokespersons, any current or former organizers who claim to speak for Community Festival are not authorized to do so.

  2. No live news broadcasts from the site are permitted.

We welcome requests anytime from July to May for a discussion of our history, year-round work in the community, and next year's festival. In the meantime, there is an abundance of written material available on our website explaining every aspect of Community Festival's purpose, history, organizational structure and impact on the community. The annual 64-page ComFest Program Guide has just been published, and is available in print form at local libraries or in an easy to use e-reader format at comfest.com/program/now.

     We strongly encourage reading our web site and Program Guide to learn what festival organizers have to say, in their own words, about the work that has made ComFest not only the most consistent winner of many "Best Festival in Columbus" awards, but also a beloved and respected institution contributing so much good to our city.
