Wellness is for everyone—with food as a central point—and that is the focus of the Wellness Your Way Festival, coming to the Colorado Convention Center in Denver August 15–18. The event first launched in Cincinnati in 2018 and was cofounded by Kroger, parent company to King Soopers, and multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, Jewel, who is passionate about wellness. In fact she used nutrition, mindfulness and holistic health to overcome childhood kidney issues and navigated from homeless to happy.
“I have always been astounded by how little education we receive to help us feel connected, happy and healthy,” says Jewel. “In a world of rising disconnection and anxiety, I am proud to help be part of the antidote by cofounding Wellness Your Way Festival and to share my life’s mission of being a healthy, satisfied person with others and to share the tools, advocates, teachers and champions I have learned from.”
The multiday event will host an array of healthy cooking demos by celebrity chefs, fitness sessions with well-known trainers, inspirational panel discussions by Kroger leaders, celebrities and influencers. There will be a Jewel and Friends concert Saturday night. Visit wellnessyourwayfestival.com for details.
