Listen up, people. Sometimes these events roundups are all CSAs and group runs and acupuncture workshops. And that’s amazing, truly. But sometimes the Lehigh Valley serves up three straight days of wine-related events and you look up to the sky and smile because this is the universe inviting us to live our best lives. And isn’t that what wellness is? That’s what I’ll be telling myself on Monday, anyway. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, KIDS!

FRIDAY

Anniversary Weekend at Vynecrest 11am - 8pm
Everyone loves a birthday celebration! Celebrate Vynecrest’s all weekend with food trucks, live music, wine slushies, and discounts on their fabulous vino.

Summer Wine Festival at Bear Creek 5:30pm - 10:30pm | $25-$30
Sip tasting pours from your commemorative wine festival glass while you sample food from more than 40 vendors (!!) and take in the gorgeous Bear Creek views.

SATURDAY

Free Fit Camp @ Crave Bethlehem 8:00am-9:00am | Free
Get an early morning workout in with the Crave girls! Your reward: treat yourself to one of their delicious smoothies that taste like dessert but fuel your beautiful bod.

Lehigh Valley Yoga Festival at Moravian College 8am - 7:30pm | $55 and up
The schedule for this year is packed with yoga and meditation classes, lectures and workshops, music, and a really cool workshop on the intersection of yoga and medicine. 

Sustainable Saturday with Domaci and the Rodale Institute 11am - 6pm | Free
Enjoy complimentary beer and wine while you learn about making sustainable choices for furniture, home decor, beauty and personal care, and more.

Bethlehem’s 8th annual VegFest 11am - 6pm | Free
Don’t miss the VegFest at its new location this year: Daniel Rice Field! Obviously an amazing day for die-hard vegans, but even meat-eaters will have their eyes opened to the incredible world of vegan food and lifestyle. We are so lucky to live this close to a vegan festival!

Sangria Fest at SteelStacks 12pm - 9pm | $10-$75
Does this even need a description?! Once you’re sufficiently buzzed on 10 sangria samplings, try your hands at Bocce courts, beanbags and quoits while live music rings through beautiful South Side Bethlehem.

SUNDAY

Wine & Gelato Pairing Weekend at Folino 11am - 8pm | $12
Move over cheese, there’s a new wine pairing in town. Okay actually, cheese, don’t go far because I love you, but I also love gelato and this sounds super refreshing. If you’ve never been to Folino Estate, this is a great chance -- it’s gorgeous!

Yoga at the Seed Farm 5:30pm - 9pm | $18-$20
Set up your mat amongst the beautiful field of the Seed farm in the rolling hills and preserved farmland of Upper Milford township, PA. After a 75-minute gentle flow, they’ll set up a pot luck picnic dinner! BYOB!

Wine & Wellness 11am - 1:30pm
The event promises you’ll leave feeling connected, inspired and nourished—and also with a swag bag. It just keeps getting better!
