Let’s be honest: planning a family weekend can feel like navigating an exhausting gauntlet of junk food, screen time, whining, and meltdowns. Sometimes, as you lie horizontal and comatose after just a day of family “bonding,” you wonder if the juice is actually worth the squeeze. 

Now close your eyes and imagine a Shangri-La where all your family fun fantasies come true: Free-flowing healthy snacks for you and the kiddos (that YOU don’t have to make), endless entertainment for all ages (that YOU don’t have to coordinate), and engaging physical activities for all abilities (that are not just healthy, but FUN!). 

Well dream no more, my friend. Because this magical place is real: The Wellness Your Way Festival, coming to the Cincinnati Duke Energy Center from October 11th-13th! 

Bring the whole family for an entire weekend of stress-free entertainment where you can join celebrity trainers, Food Network chefs, local heroes, inspiring entrepreneurs, and amazing performers in a 3 day-long festival devoted to fitness and fun. 

Revolution Fitness Ninja Warrior Course

Cincinnati super gym Revolution Fitness will be on site with their Ninja Warrior Course, offering an exciting obstacle course for ninjas of all ages. And if Mom and Dad want a bit more of a challenge? Jump into daily, rotating classes with celebrity trainers like Tony Horton (the creator of P90X) and Allison Warrell for butt-kicking sessions that’ll make you sweat.


Fun & Games on the Sports Field

Post-workout, let your partner get some quality bonding with the kiddos at the Sports Field (with games like cornhole, spikeball, and more!), while you cash in on some self-care with our Stretch Lab booth or a guided meditation at the Take a Break Wellness Lounge. For some more downtime, grab one of your beauty-obsessed littles or a girlfriend and head to the Beauty Café for hairstyles, nail painting, and gabbing with inspiring change-makers and entrepreneurs like Perez Hilton and Carmen Gaines. 



Take a walk around the grounds at any hour to nosh on a rotating selection of healthy snacks provided by WYWF sponsors and celebrity chefs. Soak in some culinary inspo at cooking demos, get your trickiest wellness questions answered by our expert panels at fascinating Q+As about the hottest health trends, and learn how you can make quality meals the whole family will love!


Justin Flom

After you stock up on tasty goodies, head to the main event: a magic show by the mind-boggling Justin Flom on Sunday afternoon, who’ll be sure to amaze your family with his incredible tricks that have already wowed audience members like Nick Jonas, John Legend, and more!

Plus, we’ll have live music all weekend from Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, Jewel, and her friends and family–including a live talent show that’ll be sure to inspire any young music-lovers in the crowd!

What are you waiting for? Leave the words “I’m boooooooored” behind and stress no more–the answer to family bonding is here. Check out the full schedule of events for info, tickets, and even MORE exciting events in the 3-day lineup!
