We’ve been telling you about singer/songwriter, Jewel’s partnership with Kroger to bring an affordable wellness festival to life for months now. Well, that festival, we are happy to say, was a huge success! Wellness Your Way featured the likes of not only Jewel (Grammy Nominated singer-songwriter), but also Gavin DeGraw (Singer), Nick Lachey (Singer), Run River North (Band), Tony Horton (P90X), Debbie Matenopoulos (“Home and Family”), Brendan Brazier (Vega), Cobi Jones (Los Angeles Galaxy), Joy Bauer (NBC Today), Mark Sisson (Primal Blueprint), Kevin Curry (Fit Men Cook), Leyon Azubuike (Gloveworx), Skylar Diggins-Smith (WNBA), Terrell Owens (NFL), Don-A-Matrix (Celebrity Trainer),  Natasha Bedingfield (singer), and more!

This star-studded event didn’t drive up the cost of the $15 dollar a day pass, proving that wellness festivals truly can reach all of those who need it most.  Over 22,000 people attended the festival.

This three-day celebration launched on October 4th at the Duke Energy Convention Center. Focused on providing accessible wellness for all, the festival supplied attendees with the platform to begin, continue, or boost their health journey. The festival combined 4 stages essential to health and wellness, Know Yourself, Nutrition/Hygiene, Fitness, and inspiration. In addition, appearances by top celebrity talent filled each day of the WYWF with discussion panels, meet and greets, cooking demos, group workouts, nightly concerts and access to the festival expo.

The mission of Wellness Your Way Festival is to inspire a healthy lifestyle in your own way. Rooted in providing an affordable platform to innovation, education and unprecedented entertainment, the WYWF was designed to inspire transformation of the mind, body, and spirit – while celebrating the great American city of Cincinnati!
And boy did they ever fulfill their mission. Bravo, Kroger, and Jewel! Three cheers for you, and for the health of Americans nationwide!
