ManiFest 2014: A Festival Serving the Whole You

Presented by KRCC 91.5 FM at Unknown

Smokebrush Foundation for the Arts and KRCC, in partnership with the Colorado Springs Independent present Mani•Fest Colorado 2014, a one-day, citywide well-being event held in beautiful Manitou Springs, Colorado on Sunday September 21, 2014

The focus is to create a day of experiences that encompass a wide and diverse range of health and wellness activities, with multiple events happening at each of the many Manitou Springs parks. We have invited like-minded musicians, artists, teachers, yogis, chefs, and health driven individuals to come and share their love of community and art with us – to teach and inspire, and celebrate being alive! Our purpose for this day is to bring together people from all of these areas for a manifestation of mind, body and spiritual well-being – to educate and celebrate the whole self through music, yoga, food, arts, and fitness. In addition to our goal of educating and entertaining the public, we hope to invite the citizens of Colorado and the world back to Manitou Springs. After recently suffering through many hardships and disasters, the community of Manitou Springs is ready to host an event such as this, showing our resolve in the face of adversity and proving that we are a great destination for family fun, historical and cultural tourism, outdoor recreation and exciting nightlife.

Scheduled for Sunday, September 21, 2014, from 6am to 8pm, the purpose of this community-oriented day-long festival is to “serve the whole you.” There will be live music performances by local Colorado musicians, cooking demonstrations, a Garden of the Gods bike ride, mineral spring tours and tastings, creative art workshops for all ages, and more! Visitors will enjoy water therapy demonstrations, drumming circles, kid’s cooking workshop, music jams, yoga classes, dance and improv street performances, as well as many more exciting events that are being planned as we prepare for the big event. To help festival’s visitors plan their day, we will be publishing an event guide, organized by park location, with a schedule, descriptions of events, activities and points of local interest.

We are in the process of seeking financial sponsors, and with the day-one support from Smokebrush, KRCC, the Colorado Springs Independent, Partners for Healthy Choices and Peak Living Project, we are witnessing an amazing amount of interest from local businesses and organizations, pledging their support to be a part of Mani•Fest. Word of mouth interest in Mani•Fest is beginning to grow, even at this early point in development, and we are excited to begin educating the public and share with them our plans for this amazing day of fun!

Mani•Fest Colorado 2014, a festival serving the whole you!
