Considered a mini-festival like experience, each tour stop will host an exciting Dream Village event that will feature interactive workshops and programming centered around mental health and wellness, beauty, arts and culture, entrepreneurship, S.T.E.M. and dream-building. In partnership with local community organizations, each event will be held outdoors and will also feature music, food trucks, game stations, swag bags, giveaways and more!
