Get Out Festival celebrates outdoors, wellness and art

Goat yoga will be offered at the May 18 event.

For its third year, the BAYarts Get Out Festival celebrating outdoors, wellness and art has added even more vendors and activities in addition to its food and live music offerings. Mark your calendar for Saturday, May 18, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.

For the first time, goat yoga will be at the event thanks to Feels Like OM. The owner, Alissa Miller, is very excited to visit a BAYarts event for the first time. "The reason people should visit our booth is plain and simple ... goats make people happy! People come to yoga not just for a workout, but to relax and decompress. Surrounding yourself with animals can lower rates of depression, anxiety, high blood pressure and loneliness."

Participants must register for the goat yoga in advance via (There will also be a petting zoo for a $1 donation.)

Drs. Casen, Anthony & Bob DeMaria are The Drugless Doctors, and they will have a booth to help people feel better through natural means. "We are puzzle solvers for our community and assist them with achieving their health goals without drugs. We will have interactive health education at our booth for the whole family."

Someone else who believes in helping people with natural healing is Linda Barberic, owner of Soma Tea. "A few years ago I was suffering from insomnia, I began my search for a natural remedy to help me find a holistic approach to sleep. From this came Soma Tea." During the event she will have many different teas for people to taste.

Lauren Givans has attended the event in the past and loved it enough to join in with her own booth. "Dynamic Discoveries is a space for adolescent girls to come together and gain support, confidence and resilience. I will be doing gratitude stones and affirmation cards. I’ve attended in the past as a community member and loved it. The vibe is so energetic with great food and music. There's a real sense of community."

One of the highlights last year was the inclusion of demo's by the Horizon ATA Karate for Kids group. "We will be hosting mini-karate demonstrations and instruction at our tent where festival goers will be able to interact and participate by performing a couple moves themselves," says owner and chief instructor Brad Clemens. "There will also be free cotton candy."

The Krav food truck will be in attendance, as will additional vendors like Spin Bike Shop, Nalu Standup Paddle & Surf, The Everarbor Company, Two One Fix Bicycle and Ohio Drones. Live on stage will be music by Kingfish.

This is also the second year that the Bay Village Trike & Bike will take place during the Get Out Festival. Last year, Bay Village Trike & Bike participants raised over $4,000 for VeloSano Kids. One-hundred percent of that money goes to support pediatric cancer research at the Cleveland Clinic. Children ages 3-12 must register in advance and can do so via a link at
