“This event is an example of our City’s commitment to supporting arts and culture, and we are proud to make this exciting two-day festival possible,” said City of Port St. Lucie Mayor Shannon Martin. “It will be a fun and diverse mix of health, wellness, arts and music, showing that PSL is truly a City for ALL People.”

Artists will showcase all types of art, including painting, sculpture, jewelry, pottery and photography, some of which have been upcycled and recycled. In addition, natural crafting vendors will exhibit handmade soaps, perfumes and a variety of healthy, delicious foods.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with the City of Port St. Lucie to expand the Cultural Alliance, family-friendly arts and Zen event, formerly called the Treasure Coast Arts & Mindfulness Fest. Joining forces with the City of Port St. Lucie will create a larger event and increase exposure and opportunity for artists throughout St. Lucie County,” said Rebecca Miller, chair of the St. Lucie Cultural Alliance. “This distinctly different celebration combines the mind-opening benefits of art with the healing power of mindfulness, and now includes multicultural musical performances.”
