The 4th annual Well Ray Festival takes place on Saturday, June 23 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., showcasing the wide variety of health and wellness opportunities in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia. The event – featuring free fitness classes, wellness demonstrations; health screenings, fitness-inspired fashion, cooking demonstrations, an interactive public art project, and more — is free and open to all.
“We’re excited about this opportunity to showcase the many incredible fitness studios and health & wellness practitioners that have earned our neighborhood the nickname ‘Well Ray,'” said Del Ray Business Association President Sue Kovalsky.
Due to the festival’s rapid growth, the Well Ray festival will move to Del Ray’s main street, taking place on Mount Vernon Avenue between Custis and Uhler Avenues. “With over 60 health and wellness vendors, there are a wide variety of opportunities for festival-goers of all ages and fitness levels to explore, heal, move, taste, and listen,” said Well Ray chair Kate Moran.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own mats to join in enjoy free fitness classes led by top-rated health and wellness providers in and around Del Ray, including yoga, Pilates, spin, dance, karate, boxing classes, and more. “Get ready to move at one of our many fitness demos, cool down with a beverage or healthy bites, and plan for the future with a life coach or counselor,” said Moran. “We have something for everyone and every fitness level!”
