FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

A "Soulsational" Summer Event is coming to the Jersey Shore!


“Every year the Epicenter of good vibes at the Jersey shore is the Soulsational Music & Wellness Festival” said the Asbury Park Press and Winner of "The Best Summer Event on the Jersey Shore" & "The Best Family Event in New Jersey"

Covid-19 Response - Here at Soulsational, we have been closely monitoring the spread of Covid-19 across the world and the United States. Like many others, we are deeply concerned about the potential impact of this novel virus and the safety and well-being of our friends, families, participants, and vulnerable populations. We are working closely with the county, city, state, and federal health authorities to determine the future of the 2020 festival season. We want to ensure that all participants are provided with accurate and up-to-date information.  

As of today, we continue to plan this event and have made safety changes to apply with current health affairs. We have decided to remain hopeful and will not hesitate to cancel the event if needed. We are 100% a volunteer family, all vendor / sponsor fees go directly to the production of the festival. If WE do need to cancel the festival because of this national health crisis vendor money collected will be returned to those that participated. We stand on our integrity. 

  Again, I state, we want to do everything possible to safeguard public health and that will be our first priority as we move forward. This years festival has been recreated as Soulsational 9 1⁄2. A smaller scale event that will encourage social space and good health practices but invigorate small business and community interaction. Like many other aspects of our daily life, we had to adapt to make it as safe as possible. Creating this day and moving forward will provide some sense of progress and normalcy which is positive in itself. 

Nothing can dim our light or our positive intentions to reach others. At our core we all carry a special light to shine and please do not doubt your capacity to heal, share love, and find joy of all the little things during this most challenging time. We witness firsthand the power of healing and human spirit at our event each year, and we hope to keep that light shining. We will all get through this, together! We will RISE, Together, as a CommUNITY! 

May 1, 2020: *Vendors will be separated by an additional 10 feet of space.  Vendors are encouraged to choose to wear masks and gloves. Those visiting the event are encouraged to choose to wear masks and gloves. We will encourage foot traffic in one direction. Payments should be collected in a manner that encourages contact-less measures.  All handling of merchandise must be done by each vendor. No congregating in vendor booth areas. No more then 8 around each booth area at a time. No sampling of items. Class participants will be asked to keep 6ft between other participants. These guidelines will be updated based on township, county, and state regulations. Anyone visiting Soulsational is expected to practice social distancing and follow state regulations, as per the Governor's Executive Order, unless otherwise addressed by the State. This will be updated Bi-weekly.

It is our expectation that people visiting Soulsational will understand the necessity of the guidelines we have put into place to protect and serve our community. 

For the 10th consecutive year, Music & Wellness will be joined together at the Soulsational Festival to take place at Veterans Park in Bayville, NJ on July 25, 2020, 11am-8pm. The festival is a free community event featuring live music, many vendors, giveaways, a silent auction, and lots of opportunities to give back and unite the Jersey Shore community! It is being sponsored and organized by Leadership United and www.MichelleALeonard.com. This event is sponsored and supported by Berkeley Township Recreation and 
The Zen Den Center. We still have room to add more sponsors this year. 

The Soulsational Music & Wellness Festival was created to honor, share, and explore the many healing modalities, practitioners, organizations, and businesses devoted to wellness right here on the Jersey Shore. Its goal is to increase awareness of the many different green, holistic, organic, and healthy options within our community, support the local economy and offer a unique interactive family experience for all those in attendance.
We together hope to motivate and inspire our community to find what brings them health and greater happiness while creating lifelong family memories.

The festival will include great local musicians, numerous free group classes, A kids village, art, poets and live demonstrations. The day will include a schedule of FREE events for the entire family of all ages; and have vendors and Food Trucks. Some featured vendors this year include businesses such as Hannah Mary Reiki and The Meaningful Mala...  plus more. There is something for everyone - From start to finish!
