The festival is a free community event featuring live music, local health and wellness businesses and practitioners, giveaways, a silent auction, and lots of opportunities to give back and unite the Jersey Shore community.

It is being organized by Alternative Health Solutions of NJ and Live Positive Today. This year is sponsored by Berkeley Township Recreation, Mercedes Benz of Freehold, Wawa, Three B's Bar & Bistro, Karma Cartel, and The Real Jersey Girls.

The Soulsational Music & Wellness Festival was created to honor, share, and explore the many healing modalities, practitioners, organizations, and businesses devoted to health and 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 experience for all those in attendance.

The festival is expected to reach an audience of over 5,000 people with continuous main stage entertainment including great local original New Jersey musicians, free group classes, and demonstrations. The day will also be packed a full schedule of free events for the entire family of all ages, and many vivacious vendors.

Some featured vendors this year include: Kula Kamala Yoga, Evolution Martial Arts, and Joey D's Brick Oven Pizzeria & Restaurant. The event will be rounded off with interactive exhibits, healthy food options and organic beer, and numerous planned activities- there is something for everyone!
