Event description


The Kind Fest is an event that was inspired by the desire to shine a light on one of the easiest and most effective tools for creating connection, joy, positive change, and community. Kindness.

It takes the contribution and collaboration of all of us to shape the loving world we strive to live in and the ripple of kindness is the very thing that creates it. Our mission is to create a kinder world by modeling, educating, and encouraging others to action and honoring how it is already in practice. We want festival-goers to come to learn, to teach, to inspire, and be inspired.

All are welcome to this free event and nobody will be turned away. Our suggested cash or card donation is $5 per person or $20 per family. We deeply value the spirit of your generosity as it exhibits both appreciation and committment to the importance of spreading kindness which is why we have adopted the donation based model.

Bring your mats and do yoga in front of the amphitheater before the festival begins


10:00 Erin Merrihew BEING COMPASSION: How would your life improve if you could stay openhearted during conflict? If you could process difficult feelings without shaming or isolating yourself? If you could meet yourself and others with dignity and compassion rather than judgement and blame. Erin will introduce the tools of Compassionate Communication and how it can begin to create a kinder world within yourself and in your relationships.

10:30 Shannon Williamson KIND HOMES: What if we could create Kind homes for ourselves, our bodies, and our environment by starting with simple things like paying attention to the products that we are using daily. Join Shannon on an exploration and conversation about what a non-toxic chemical free environment might look like and the small changes you can start making now.

12:00 Yasmin Nyugen THE GIFT OF JOY: With so much negativity in the world we often feel stressed out, exhausted, hopeless, and overwhelmed. What if the catalyst for change in the world lies within our own daily experiences? What if we could leave a legacy of hope, positivity, and inspiration for our children and generations to come. Maybe the gift of joy is exactly the thing to help make positive change possible!

12:30 Jacob Smith IDEALS OF LOVE: One thing all of us humans have in common is the desire for healthy, happy, and loving relationships. Yet we continue to struggle our way through relationships and wonder why. Jacob will use this time to share and bring awareness to our 7 ideals of love, a framework that we were all born with.

1:30 Alexa Johnson UNITED THROUGH ENERGY: Come listen to the basics of human energy and the energy all around us.

2:30 Cait Pearson CULTIVATING KINDNESS: Obtaining and sustaining a mindset of being kind to oneself can be a relentless struggle because of the story loop that continues to play over and over again in our mind's. Kindness is like a muscle that can easily grow weak when life gets tiresome, complicated, or too much. Cait's dynamic message will be about how we can begin to cultivate kindness from within.

3:00 Rod Brooks GRANDPA PROJECT: The Grandpa Project was born out of one man’s unconditional love for his grandchildren, and has subsequently grown to have a special mission and purpose that is coming to life. Rod believes that every child deserves to know, learn from and be loved by their grandpa. Come to learn more!
