2024 Summer Soulstice Festival

Who Are We

Join us for our 3rd annual
arts + wellness festival!

In celebration of the Summer Solstice, Soultry Sisters host an
annual Arts + Wellness Festival. Our three-day festival highlights BIPOC, women, and queer artists and wellness practitioners based in San Diego. We collaborate with them to build our festival program that includes creative expression classes (dance, creative writing, visual arts), wellness workshops (yoga, meditation, sound healing), and performances (musicians, singers, DJs, spoken word artists, dancers). Our festival aims to showcase diverse local creatives and how access to arts & wellness resources contributes to our social, emotional, mental, physical & collective health. By curating a meaningful and intentional festival, we can connect to the local Carlsbad community while centering creative expression, personal development, holistic wellbeing, and communal care.

Our festival features San Diego based QTBIPOC artists, wellness advocates, and healers who inspire the work we do here at Soultry Sisters. They will lead arts and wellness workshops, performances, and art installations centered around creative expression, collective healing, and mindful movement. This year we are asking each guest artist to create a workshop or performance in response to our festival theme, Reclaiming Ancestral Healing.
