This Wellness Festival Just Dropped Its General Admission Prices to $10
At the Unconventional Wellness Festival, get three workouts, drinks, and access to a wellness marketplace for less than you'd probably spend at happy hour.
Now that warmer weather has finally arrived in Philly (it’s so comparatively nice out, guys!), the onslaught of outdoor fitness events is about to start. And the inaugural Unconventional Wellness Festival, at the Met Philadelphia on April 7th, is one of the first large ones.
Organizers Heather Bonato and Gina Durante, who also run East Passyunk’s Yoga Hive Philly, already made noise by announcing they were bringing celebrity trainer Stephen Pasterino — primarily of Victoria’s Secret angel fame — and his killer P.volve workout to the Met Philly as the headliner for Unconventional Wellness. Now, they’re attracting attention again by slashing their general admission prices to an insane $10. (Tickets were originally $75, but they launched a March Madness sale a few weeks ago to drop the cost to $45.)
We assumed that meant tickets weren’t selling as fast as Bonato and Durante would have liked, but they’ve said more vendors wanted to participate than expected, which helped them cover the rental fees at the Met and pass along the savings to guests. In the end, it doesn’t really matter why the price fell. The fact remains that attendees will now get three workouts (two upbeat yoga flows plus P.volve), a keynote on stress management, happy hour drinks, a pop-up photo booth with alpacas (yes, really), and access to an extensive marketplace of wellness vendors for TEN. FREAKING. DOLLARS.
Anyone who purchased a ticket before the price change will now receive additional perks, like working out onstage alongside Pasterino and discounts from participating vendors such as clean skincare line Cocokitty Beauty and drum fitness company Rhythmetrix. In our opinion, though, this is one of those rare cases where the late birds are profiting just as much as the early ones.
