About the Wellness Village…

Our Labour Day festival weekend is a grassroots family event, featuring multiple stages with performers from across the continent and around the corner. We also offer an exceptional array of talented visual artists, fabulous hands-on programming for families, fine local foods, and our Wellness and Sustainable Living Village displays and workshops. Our Wellness Village offers festival-goers a chance to learn and experience in an open air environment.

This year's festival on Labour Day Weekend runs Friday August 30 to Sunday September 1, 2013.

As organizers we have chosen not to "rent" space in the Wellness Village. We invite those interested to participate in our application process which informs our experienced jury and helps its planning for this year's festival. Each year the jury carefully crafts a grouping of unique Wellness Village participants from applications received. Our Wellness practitioners become part of the Festival team presenting a weekend experience for the community. In this way we create a unique and vibrant Festival Village for the weekend supporting our contributors and encouraging festival-goers to learn about and share in the experience.

We are looking for contributors willing to interact with our audience and demonstrate their area of interest. In this way contributors become part of the Festival team presenting a unique weekend experience for the community.
