We still have room to add more sponsors this year.
The Soulsational Music & Wellness Festival was created to honor, share, and explore the many healing modalities, practitioners, organizations, and businesses devoted to wellness right here on the Jersey Shore. Its goal is to increase awareness of the many different green, holistic, organic, and healthy options within our community, support the local economy and offer a unique interactive family experience for all those in attendance. We together hope to motivate and inspire our community to find what brings them health and greater happiness while creating lifelong family memories.
The festival is expected to reach an audience of over 5,000 people with continuous duel stage entertainment including great local original New Jersey musicians, numerous free group classes, A kids village, an art gallery, poets corner and live demonstrations.
