ViewFest – noun – A powerful and uplifting Community Event for Mental Health & Wellness that allows individuals and organizations to unite and share their views, stories, experiences & resources – all within a vibrant festival environment.

ViewFest2024 Includes

World Record Attempt – Narcan Training – BE PART OF THE SOLUTION
A LIFE SAVING training course that educates how to recognize the signs of an opioid overdose and administer the reversal drug Naloxone.
Why is the record Important?
By empowering the public through Naloxone training, we can stem the tragic tide of opioid overdoses sweeping the nation. Setting a new world record for Naloxone distribution allows us to blaze a trail that others will follow, driving momentum for this critical initiative. Each life saved creates a ripple effect, inspiring more training and distribution until we turn the tide on this epidemic. Together, we can build communities of empowered responders, saving lives one training at a time.
Record Breaking Training is expected to begin at 11:15am and run through 11:45am.
**Time is subject to change**
Additional training times available but are not part of the World Record.
You may participate in and / or witness the World Record training. Space will be limited. If unable to participate, individual training will still be offered during other times.
