KEY PROGRAM ELEMENTS:
The Main Stage: The Argyros Performing Arts Center will feature thought-leaders speaking to an appropriately distanced audience. Additionally, all presentations will be available virtually and will feature sponsor branded pre-roll video before each event. Content will be available for 30 days with unlimited availability for multiple views – guaranteeing a lasting and meaningful impression on the audience. The Argyros has installed an ionization system that neutralizes airborne pathogens to provide a cleaner environment in the theater.
The Culinary Stage: “Let food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food.” This quote by Greek physician Hippocrates has stood the test of time for a reason. We are thrilled to announce that 2021 will feature SVWFC cooking demonstrations and presentations at the newly opened Sun Valley Culinary Institute located on Main Street, Ketchum.
The Experience Park: The Forest Service Park and Washington Avenue will comprise the SVWFC Experience Park. This venue, free to the public, is adjacent to the Limelight Hotel and located one block from Main Street, Ketchum. Visitors will peruse a multitude of booths offering wellness products, services, and hands-on wellness practitioners – all in the beautiful tree-lined park setting. Healthy food vendors, music, and free yoga classes at noon all combine to set a chill vibe and aesthetic.
The InSight Stage: Located on the outdoor terrace of the Limelight Hotel, the SVWFC InSight Stage provides 30-45 minute presentations on a variety of wellness topics. Presenters include select Main Stage speakers, vendors, and local practitioners. All InSight Stage events are free and open to the public.
Nature: The venue for which Ketchum/Sun Valley is best known is the alluring natural environment that cradles the towns. SVWFC integrates the outdoors into programming by featuring events such as guided hikes, mountain yoga, mindful fly fishing, sunrise meditation, plant foraging, and more. From the top of Bald Mountain to the forested trails and the river valley, 2021 SVWFC offers the ultimate Sun Valley Wellness Experience where attendees can choose their outdoor adventure.
