Unplug from the ordinary. Adventure awaits.

Regardless of what starts you on your path, Wanderlust is an experience that will leave you different than when you came — with new ideas, new friends, newly-discovered abilities, and greater peace. Find your true north.
The Wanderlust Experience
Whether you’re an experienced yogi, meditator or are brand new to practice, you can create your ideal day at Wanderlust. There are classes for all levels, from beginner to expert, as well as a wide variety of practice styles and venue types. Mix in meditation or relaxing yin classes with sweaty, uplifting vinyasa, or challenge yourself with something completely new like standup paddleboard yoga or aerial yoga. Feel the energy of hundreds of yogis moving together in our flagship outdoor venue, or drop into an intimate, indoor class accompanied by a live musician or DJ. Each festival offers a taste of internationally recognized teachers as well as top local instructors.
Music is the beating heart of Wanderlust Festivals. True to our name, our music lineup is just as much about discovery as it is about seeing artists you know and love. Revel in a wide variety of musical performers in myriad settings, from epic main stage performances to intimate acoustic shows to the many performances accompanying our yoga classes. And if you get inspired by the artists on stage, you can try your hand at a few tunes with drumming, guitar, and other music workshops.
The Speakeasy is Wanderlust Festival’s lecture series on subjects pertaining to the mindful life. With an inspiring lineup including prominent authors, yoga teachers, musicians, health experts, business leaders, and filmmakers, the Speakeasy provides a casual setting for speakers to offer a short lecture and respond to attendees’ questions. It’s a chance to interact with, and learn from, some of the most engaging thinkers at Wanderlust.
Grass-fed, cold-pressed, small-batch, gluten-free … if it’s got a hyphen and is good to eat, it’s likely at Wanderlust. Wanderlust offers healthy fare throughout the festival, whether you’re grabbing a quick bite from the hand-picked vendors in our Food Co-op or sitting down at the Farm to Table Dinner, our mountain top local food experience. For those with a wee bit of thirst, we also offer Wanderlust Uncorked, small gatherings featuring the best craft wine & beer and even better company.
