Illuminate Festivals Return to Florida

After a two-year hiatus, Illuminate Mind-Body-Spirit-Arts Festivals will return to Punta Gorda on October 30, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center. Also, this year we’re presenting a new Illuminate Fort Myers to be held on November 5, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Crown Plaza Fort Myers.  

Both of these events will feature local holistic wellness practitioners and artists. Beautiful crystals, handmade jewelry and gifts, essential oils, luxurious spa products, original art and photography will be available. Intuitives, including vetted psychic mediums, Angel readers, tarot and oracle card readers, will offer special festival rates for their services. Energy healers will perform Reiki treatments and chakra balancing. There will also be free workshops to attend throughout the day. Admission is free as well.  

“We are excited to be back in Florida, offering our special brand of boutique festival. We are especially excited to be collaborating with SWFL local Lainie Sevante Wulkan and her business In2uitive Wisdom Productions, LLC. Lainie’s experience as a fourth-generation intuitive and wellness event coordinator is an added boost to our festivals,” says Illuminate Festivals founder, Judy Bazis.  

“We have missed serving the community in person. We have chosen to view the last two years as a sacred pause, and it has given practitioners an opportunity to broaden and deepen their spiritual gifts. I know they are looking forward to bring even more of those good vibes to Illuminate Punta Gorda and Illuminate Fort Myers!” 


Punta Gorda Location: 75 Taylor St., Punta Gorda. Fort Myers Location: 13051 Bell Tower Dr., Fort Myers. Exhibitor spaces (including a table, tablecloth, chairs and electricity access) might still be available for $150 plus registration fees. For more information, visit
