Celebrate health and wellbeing at Wellfest Adelaide

Wellfest Adelaide
From forest bathing at the Adelaide Zoo to meditation at the Museum, WellFest Adelaide 2022 will celebrate all things wellbeing and shine a light on Adelaide as an emerging destination in wellbeing tourism.

WellFest Adelaide, a citywide wellbeing festival delivered by the Adelaide Economic Development Agency (AEDA), returns for its second year.

The festival kicks off on Friday 7 October with a month-long calendar of world-class events and activations in collaboration with local businesses set to inspire your inner zen.

The WellFest Adelaide program includes an impressive line-up of mindful and wellbeing experiences including the Shimmy with my Mini dance workshop and [Himalayan] Salt Cave Sound Bath Sessions.

AEDA Managing Director Ian Hill said WellFest Adelaide returns next month to the CBD and North Adelaide – bigger and better with a jam-packed program focused on health and wellbeing.

AEDA is proud to deliver a unique program of wellbeing events and further stimulate Adelaide’s economy by encouraging visitation and economic activity with focus on the six pillars of wellbeing identified by McKinsey and Company in research conducted in 2021 – health, fitness, nutrition, appearance, sleep & mindfulness,” Mr Hill said.

“Our aspiration is for WellFest Adelaide to be what South by Southwest (SXSW) is for Austin. That’s our vision. We have continued to expand on the success of the inaugural event, as we envisage WellFest Adelaide being another jewel in the crown of South Australia’s world-class suite of festivals, and a global destination in wellbeing.

“Adelaide is one of most liveable cities in the world offering transformative and engaging wellbeing experiences, and we want city users and visitors alike to be part of the festivities.”
