Keep your resolutions rolling at the new Healthy Hedonism Festival

A festival without a hangover? Sign us up.

Treat yourself to a day of mindful self-love, self-care and self-indulgence at the inaugural Healthy Hedonism Festival on Sunday, February 2!

The first festival of its kind, Healthy Hedonism Festival will take over the Valley’s X Cargo, exploring the mindful drinking culture for those of us who are feeling sober-curious following 2019’s boom in Aussies rethinking their drinking.

Healthy Hedonism will feature a huge range of bars, foodie pop-ups, cocktail-making demos, and health and lifestyle activations including beer yoga, boxing, and dips in X Cargo’s pop-up pool!

Eats Alley will house the festival’s various healthy vendors for guilt-free samples and feasting, with food on offer from Wilde Kitchen, Bare Naked Bowls, Paleo Hero and more. 

Enjoy talks from some big names in the mindful drinking scene, including author of the popular Sober Curious, Ruby Warrington, local blogger Shan Cooper of My Food Religion and “bad-ass nutritionist” Sofie Van Kempen, and Sydney’s Shannon Rosie of Living With Rosie.

Thought the low-alcohol lifestyle was low-fun? Taste the booze-free deliciousness of Lyre’s Spirit Co, or the Gold Coast’s own Sobah alcohol-free craft beer. Big names Aperol and Heineken will also be on hand to prove you wrong in tasty fashion.

Tickets to Healthy Hedonism Festival are only $59, with all guests receiving a gift bag and cocktail on arrival, access to loads of healthy snack and cocktail-making workshops, and fitness and wellness sessions. Grab yours here, and prepare to feel freakin’ amazing. 


Keeping the G&G up to date with tasty tidbits requires a lot of lattes (and espresso martinis), so we occasionally need to give out some sponsored love. Rest assured that we only work with businesses that we think you’ll love.
