GOOD is a space for the modern woman to build on her wellness.

 

WHAT IT IS

GOOD is first and foremost a community of support -- a space to connect, share, grow, and lean in. We certainly aren't counting calories. 

 

WHO IS IT FOR

GOOD is for anyone who understands that wellness is a lifestyle, not just something you do when life allows you to "get around to it". It's for the people who've been bitten by the wellness bug, but want more. The GOOD Festival is for anyone who wants to make choices that are in alignment with their body, their career, and their lives. 

 

WHY ATTEND

Because you want to be in a place where people get you.   Where you don't have to apologize for eating a piece of bread even if you're mostly gluten-free. There will be no body shaming, judgement or regimented diets here.

Attend if you'd like to meet other people who also live for spin class, drink their greens, and just get it. 

Join us if you want to know how to create the balance between being a parent, professional, or student, and taking care of yourself. If you want to be surrounded by inspiring brands who you've seen on Instagram or didn't know existed in the city. Attend if you want to go home feeling like a million bucks because you drank green juice, meditated, powwowed with some smart and sassy people, completed an amazing workout and connected with expert speakers who are inspiring and approachable.

You'll leave feeling connected to like-minded individuals who are on the same page and can make your wellness journey more...fun.

 

At the GOOD Festival you will...

Hear from and connect with approachable & inspiring speakers who will build you up and guide you in creating a balanced, healthy life

Enjoy a fresh lunch, green juice, cold brew coffee and snacks... on us!

"So, you want to start a wellness festival?"

That's how it happened. And we're so excited it did! Philly is primed for a festival that takes a more holistic approach to wellness. Bringing in speakers and content that applies to all areas of your life.

Why GOOD?

 
 

Every day - we try to be the best versions of ourselves. But, that doesn't mean we are doing everything perfectly. We don't wake up every day with yoga, meditation, green juice, a consult with our naturopath and a 4-course vegan dinner. Sometimes, we have to grab food on the go. Sometimes, we don't get to work out. Sometimes, we curse the traffic holding us back.

THAT'S OKAY. GOOD is all about the curiosity to figure out what works well for you. What makes you feel your best. And what can keep you motivated to take better care of yourself. 

This has been a long time coming for Philly. We hope, more than anything, that the festival positively impacts your life or inspires you in some way - and if nothing else, you have a killer day with your friends.
