If the Wanderlust 108 mindful triathlons of years past seemed to fly by too fast, but you haven’t yet been able to swing a 4-Day Destination Festival, you’re in luck.
To celebrate 10 awesome years, there’s an all-new way to sneak a little extra wellness into your busy life. Enter: Wanderlust’s 2-Day City Festival, a transformative experience meant to give your mind, body, and soul some well-deserved TLC.
If you’ve ever been to the magical retreat that is a Wanderlust Festival, then you know that these four-day gatherings take you to the most breathtaking natural settings imaginable—places like Oahu or Tahoe—then surround you with a dynamic family of one-of-a-kind instructors (we’re talking celebrity yogis), musicians, speakers, chefs, and people like you, whose hearts just want to wander.
Well, think of the 2-Day City Festival as a more accessible Wanderlust retreat… a little closer to home. It’s everything you love about the whimsical festival getaway distilled down and delivered to your city’s doorstep.
Clear your calendar for the weekend of September 14-15 because Wanderlust is bringing its 2-Day City Festival to Chicago. And true to form, they’re offering a jam-packed schedule filled with up to 50+ yoga and fitness classes, inspiring speakers, meditation sessions, and blissed-out vibes.
You may be thinking, “what will we do for two whole days?”, but once you’ve bounced around between the six tented venues in this pop-up village, you’re going to be wishing you had more time. Throughout the day, you’ll sweat it out in The Lab (an open-air fitness studio), rejuvenate your body and mind in The Greatest Place (a warm and welcoming gathering space), and fill up on enlightening talks from wellness leaders at the festival’s “Speakeasies”.
And in between, you can fuel up with handpicked local healthy food vendors or stop by The Haven (a secluded space for self-care). This uplifting and energizing day all culminates around 8pm, when you’ll dance into the sunset alongside your best friends to the sound of dueling DJs during a silent disco.
The beauty of a two-day experience? You’ll get to rest your tired limbs in the comfort of your own bed and then get up and do it all over again.
Tickets are going fast for this exclusive festival (they’re only hosting seven across the US), so you’ll want to secure your spot ASAP. As it turns out, you don’t have to travel far to find your true north.
