A wellness platform for the whole human.
Summer 2021


Since 2018, The Kroger Co, Inclusion Companies, and Grammy-nominated, singer-songwriter, mental health advocate, Jewel have partnered to bring physical, emotional, and mental wellness resources to the masses with an annual in-person festival.

To keep our attendees safe in the wake of COVID-19, the 2020 event has been postponed to the spring of 2021. We are excited to return with food, music, inspiration, and more in 2021, with the necessary precautions to keep everyone safe.

New Name, Same Mission


Since 2018, Wellness Your Way Festival has been the premier wellness event of the midwest. In only the second year, Wellness Your Way Festival brought in over 40,000 attendees over the festival weekend.

In 2020, the yearly festival event expanded to a new platform – The Wellness Experience by Kroger. Year-round digital events, healthy-living resources, better-for-you products in Kroger stores, and Festival help customers take actionable steps toward making their lives healthier, easier, brighter and a bit lighter.

A Holistic Vision For Wellness


From knowing your numbers to the best daily mental wellness practices, we look at the whole human to create tools, resources, and events for all areas of health, wellness and better living.
