Interfaith Celebration

Cincinnati Festival of Faiths, the signature event of EquaSion, is currently scheduled for August 23-30, 2020. This year due to the COVID-19 pandemic the 3rd Annual Festival will consist of a number of virtual activities for the entire family that will continue to promote interfaith understanding, unity and collaborative social action. This year’s theme is “Compassion Through Action: 20/20 Vision for Hope, Healing and Justice,” and the activities being planned will again embrace the 30 faith communities and 13 world religions that have participated in previous festivals. To learn more about and register for events, including interfaith worship, social action & advocacy, choral music, spiritual meditations, brown bag and webinar events, and a panel discussion for youth, please sign-up to receive our email newsletter.

Cincinnati’s annual Festival of Faiths serves as the leading opportunity in Greater Cincinnati to bring together people of all faiths and communities to learn from each other and celebrate our differences. EquaSion’s festival has resulted in the creation of the most inclusive network of faith communities ever engaged in our region’s history.

For a moving testimonial to the amazing experience the Festival provides, we urge you to read this poem penned by a previous participant, Isabella Daley.
