Live Well Festival to feature health and wellness activities, farm to table brunch

Spring has sprung and it’s time for the year’s first festival in historic downtown Manassas! The 10th Annual Live Well Festival, formerly known as Spring Cleaning Day, will be held Saturday, April 16 from 9 a.m. – 2 .p.m in the Harris Pavilion and along West Street. Health and wellness information, exercise classes, a farm-to-table brunch, and more will be available.

The entertainment stage will be housed under the pavilion featuring free exercise demos from bedrock YOGA and Curves, gardening tips and demos from Southern States and the Master Gardeners, and live music from Lou Rosgen. Novant Health will be bringing out the Mammography Mobile and partnering with the City of Manassas Fire & Rescue and EMS to teach CPR techniques. Several artists from the Banner Art Project will be displaying and selling work, the farmers market will be open for business, and kids rides and games will be set up to ensure fun for all.

Back again this year is the Shred-It Truck. As opposed to previous years, the Shred-It Truck will be stationed in the Train Depot parking lot rather than the end of West Street. Attendees planning to use the Shred-It Truck should follow the posted route signs along Prince William Street – cars will be able to turn into the parking lot via West Street and exit via Battle Street to then park in the garage and enjoy the rest of the festival.

New this year, the Live Well Festival will feature a farm-to-table brunch. Chef Will Landay, from C.J. Finz, will be preparing a 3 course meal using fresh ingredients from the City of Manassas Farmers Market. The brunch will be set up atop the flat railcar behind the iconic LOVE sign from 11am until 12:30pm. Tickets for the brunch can be purchased here.
