The NESS Fest Creates a Movement for a Healthier Upstate

The two-day health and lifestyle festival, in partnership with the Greenville Drive, makes waves in the Upstate as they challenge the community to set out on their own personal wellNESS, goodNESS, fitNESS, and wholeNESS journey.

September 2019 - Greenville, SC: ​On October 19th and 20th, Fluor Field, home to the Greenville Drive, will transform into a two-day health and lifestyle festival during the second annual NESS Fest! It’s a fun-filled and enlightening event created to motivate people of all ages in the Upstate to take the first steps on their personal wellness journey. Packed with more than six stages devoted to wellness, goodness, fitness and wholeness, The NESS Fest attendees can engage with the community while challenging themselves to start living a healthier lifestyle. Live music, fun activities and a variety of the best vendors and food trucks in the Upstate will also be on hand.

The NESS Fest is the ideal environment and the ultimate platform for attendees to gain access to healthy lifestyle, services, brands and opportunities they may not have known existed before. The festival has partnered with local companies like the YMCA of Greenville, Soul Yoga Studio, Farm Fresh Fast, Happy and Hale, Prisma Health and Sprouts Farmers Market to bring more awareness about the wellness, goodness, fitness and wholeness opportunities that the Upstate provides. New topics this year range from overall wellness and nutrition seminars to sexual health, addiction and post-partum depression seminars presented in a more approachable and private setting and led by various professionals from the community.

Brenda Luginbill, CEO and Founder of The NESS Fest says “We have so much in-store for our second annual NESS Fest happening in October! More vendors, more classes, more fun and more community! It’s our goal to throw open the doors to healthy opportunities, from nutrition and fitness to overall wellness. It’s a fun-filled, family event that everyone will enjoy. We’re pushing for a better, healthier, Greenville- and having a blast doing it!”
And long after the festival is over, the NESS movement will continue to highlight the importance of everyone in the community— friends, families, community leaders, companies and more—coming together as one for a happier and healthier Greenville.
