Schedule of Events


What's the best way to begin a day of health and wellness? With a nutritious breakfast, of course, and for the first 150 people (Limited seating! Reserve today!) who register for our VIP Breakfast, they will receive an exclusive Mediterranean-style breakfast (gluten-free and vegan breakfast options available), courtesy of two of Baltimore's most popular establishments, Cava Mezze, and Zeke's Coffee. Breads, muffins, and croissants from Schar will also be provided. 

Beyond breakfast, your VIP Pass provides you with benefits for you alone:

Meet and greet our collected panel of experts who will be speaking on important health topics throughout the day. 
Enjoy a baking demonstration from gluten-free baking pioneer Jules Shepard of gfJules.
A VIP Swag Bag filled with product samples and discount coupons for products and services from businesses that share our vision for healthier living.
Exclusive access to the Holiday Market before the surge of the crowds at 10 AM!



At 10 AM, the doors open for free admission. Why free? As our mission is for people and communities to lead healthier lives, we want our speakers and the information provided (check out the line-up, below) to be accessible to all.

A lot will happen throughout the day to make it fun for the entire family:

Attend a talk in our Wellness Lounge. Learn from medical and nutrition experts in cancer-free living, gluten-free living, and nutrition's impact on your genetics. 
Center yourself by taking part in a qigong session.
Learn more about mindfulness and meditation.
Experience the benefits of therapeutic massage.
