Wanderlust, the one-of-a-kind festival bringing together the world’s leading yoga gurus, renowned speakers, some incredible musical talent and DJs, top chefs and winemakers, and so much more comes to California on July 26th, 2012. This fairly new festival will take place in the beautiful and breathtaking natural beauty of North Shore Lake Tahoe area, Squaw Valley.  Look for Event City to cover this New Age type festival with an incredible amount of enjoyment tied into several days of health and happiness!

You can expect a great deal of fun in the sun and dancing under the stars. Hiking on peaceful trails to the top of the mountains, there is truly something for everyone, kids included, checkout one of the special programs for children at Wanderlust Festival! Sipping poolside cocktails with your friends, and then enjoying a tasty farm-to-table dinner with views of the surrounding mountain peaks. Early morning meditations and all-night chakra spinning musical performances — it’s an all-out ecstatic celebration in one of the most awe-inspiring locations in the world.

So what’s a day like at Wanderlust? Wake up to crisp mountain air and morning sunshine in your mountainside condo, throw a couple of items in your daypack, and join your fellow attendees for one of Wanderlust’s signature morning meditation hikes. If you have kids you can drop them off at the Wanderkind kids’ program before you head out. After your hike, cruise for some handcrafted goodness in the vendor village, grab a quick snack from one of our local & organic food vendors, and then hop into yoga class with one of your favorite teachers in a stunning outdoor classroom. After class, reward yourself with a delicious meal from one of our on-site restaurants. Have a seat in our outdoor food co-op, grab a cup of tea in our tea house, and stroll over to our Speakeasy venue, where you can listen to a fascinating lecture by one of our many speakers. In the afternoon, you might check out some of the live music at our Casbah stage, rock an afternoon yoga class, go kayaking down the local river, hit the trails with your mountain bike, or ride the free cable car up to the top of the mountain to kick it poolside with your crew. In the evening enjoy some world-class wine tasting, a fine family style dinner, or some great Live Music from the Main Stage.

As a Wanderlust rookie myself, I have been spending the last few days reviewing all of the wonderful areas and talent that will be presenting at this truly unique, one-of-a-kind event. True to their “Core Mission” statement, Wanderlust does seem to “create community around mindful living, mindful living is a conscious, value-based approach to leading a sane & healthy life.

I urge you to visit the Wanderlust website to learn more about this grand festival, and all they have to offer.
