Autism- and Sensory-Friendly Music Festival in Jermyn

Inclusion Festival, an autism and sensory-friendly music and wellness festival, will be held July 28 and 29 at Mountain Sky Festival Grounds, in Jermyn, Pennsylvania, just north of Scranton.

         Inclusion Festival celebrates neurodiversity, promotes understanding and acceptance, and provides educational opportunities within a safe, nurturing environment. Individuals with special needs, and those who wish to support them, are invited to participate and attend recreational and educational workshops, connect with nature, experience live music, participate in mindfulness practices and build a supportive community network and lifestyle that extends far beyond the festival grounds.

         Amy Pinder, speech language pathologist, and Leah Hegstrom Barron, special education and yoga teacher, are Inclusion Festival’s founders and directors. Together, they have assembled a team of educators, event planners, musicians and therapists dedicated to improving the quality of life and raising awareness of individuals with special needs, such as autism, through inclusive, immersive experiences. ASL interpreters will also be available.

         The 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Accessible Festivals, which specializes in ensuring that music festivals are accessible to anyone, regardless of their ability, will be partnering with Inclusion Festival. Accessible Festivals’ clients include LiveNation, Wanderlust and more.

Cost: Day pass and weekend pass tickets available. Kids 12 and under, free. Location: 63 Stillmeadow Ln., Jermyn. For more information, visit InclusionFestival.com.
