Feel Good Fest 2023
100+ LIVE BUTTERFLIES!
Saturday, April 29th, 2023
We are partnering with the non-profit Habitual Roots once again! There will be a donation bucket on site and a portion of these proceeds will go to benefit Habitual Roots. This non-profit operates in Charlotte and Greater Charlotte areas and is creating spaces for you to dive deeper into our own mental health practice! Check out their page for more information!
We work with some of the best vendors in North Carolina and approximately 50 of them will have their wide variety of products, crafts, and services available for purchase at Feel Good Fest throughout the day! Come prepared to have a good time!
Drum Circle By DeeAnn Macomson
We will be having a drum circle on site from 6pm-7pm. Please bring your drums or any other tools that you may have to make sound with!
There are many benefits of group drumming and rhythm events. Drumming boosts the immune system so there is actual science that backs up the feeling of happiness and well-being that most people experience after drumming. It’s an easy instrument to learn and can be taught in a matter of minutes.
Patches O’Houlihan (almost) said: ” If you’re going to become true obstacle courser, then you’ve got to learn the five d’s of obstacle coursing: dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge!”
This year we will have an obstacle course that will be providing ALL DAY fun! Squeeze through tunnels, jump over barriers, slip underneath bars, and push your way past any obstacle that comes your way while trying to move as fast as possible! Start thinking of who you are going to be racing in our 3 piece obstacle course!
Cody Hanes draws faces and will be set up to draw yours at Feel Good Fest! See what you look like as a cartoon or have yourself drawn up as any character, theme, or hobby you can imagine!
BUTTERFLY GEODOME EXPERIENCE
We are usually chasing butterflies when we see them in nature, however, at Feel Good Fest, we are bringing butterflies to you! We will have 100+ butterflies inside of a geodesic dome tent for you to interact with (don’t worry, they will be released after the event). There will be live plants inside the dome and we will have tools to help you take photos with butterflies a breeze! Bring your camera and beautiful smile because you are not going to want to miss this!
KIDS “Feel good” fun zone
Sarah Katharine will be painting faces in our Kid’s Fun Zone! Bubble Trouble will also be in attendance with bubbles of all sizes and tools for you to blow your own! You can also look forward to fun games, art classes, crafting, dance parties, and so much more. This is a Feel Good Fest for ALL ages!
Parachute People are coming back! – The stress reducing, positivity producing, parachute with a purpose! Yes, this is the traditional parachute that you hopefully remember from your childhood! Filled with affirmations, community building games, and a good time – every time!
Satarah is the lovechild of Satya and Sarah Hahn, two passionate and talented professional belly dancers, aerialist, and fire performers that have come together to produce fantastic events and entertain the world. This dynamic duo have been professionally performing for over 20 years, bringing excitement where-ever they go. Currently calling Charlotte home, this duo travels near and far to produce and perform at events and teach workshops. They have also recently opened studio Satarah, hosting all types of events in Charlotte, and will be showcasing several of their students at Feel Good Fest!
