January 25 – 27 And Beyond, 2020


WELLHAUS is pleased to announce its long-term partnership with premier cannabis investment and management team, Erba Verde Group, along with other wellness brands as it continues its pioneering efforts during Sundance, engaging the top independent storytellers and filmmakers in cinema.


January 6, 2019 (Park City, UT)– WELLHAUS, the new health, wellness and CBD/cannabis-focused event platform from event industry veterans Axcess Entertainment, is pleased to announce its second activation during 2020’s Sundance/Slamdance film festivals in Park City, UT in conjunction with Presenting Sponsor Erba Verde Group. Located in the heart of historic Main Street, WELLHAUS has partnered with three local venues to create a first-ever multi-location brand experience at the Festival: the Wellhaus Spa at the PuraVida Spa at Sky & Main Hotel (201 Heber Street at Main); the Wellhouse Café at the Main Street Deli (525 Main Street) and the Wellhaus Lounge at the brand-new Old Town Cellars (OTC, 408 Main Street) from January 24th through 27th during the festivals’ kick-off weekend. The Wellhaus Spa will additionally operate unique health & wellness services for the duration of the festival week, through February 2nd.

The Erba Verde Group (EVG) is a company with the global vision and leadership to become the future of legal cannabis. EVG is focused on early-stage investments, distribution, ancillary businesses and digital solutions in the emerging cannabis market. Erbe Verde is an end-to-end player in the cannabis, hemp and CBD space, involved in cultivation, extraction, R&D, product development, and distribution. WELLHAUS seeks to embody the Group’s ethos—as well as those of their other sponsors and partners—by implementing a series of unique programming and hospitality activations throughout the duration of Sundance, each aimed to educate and entertain the public and the festival community on the rapidly growing cannabis and CBD movement and wider health and wellness industries.

When it debuted last year, WELLHAUS was the first fully-integrated health, wellness and ancillary product concept house during the festival, marking a departure from the typical mainstream consumer brand sponsor activations. Featuring the Wellhaus Lounge at OTC with exciting experiential and hospitality activations daily, and a fully integrated CBD-infusion cocktail bar—as well as spirits, wine and beer throughout the space—WELLHAUS will host film premieres, dinners, receptions, daytime experiential activities, happy hours and panel discussions on cannabis in Hollywood and other topics. WELLHAUS will mix this programming with events in support of official competition films and leading filmmakers at the festival, to provide a truly integrated and unique Main Street experience. Select activities at WELLHAUS will also be open to the festival public, including the CBD infusion bar – making this one of the most sought-after and highly trafficked locations during the festival.

Finally, the Wellhaus Café, in partnership with the Main St. Deli, will feature complimentary health & wellness food, beverage and snack products from CBD-infused coffees to fresh-pressed juices and more each morning to help fuel festival-goers as they begin their day.
