The university is hosting a stress-less fest this Sunday at the Evans Lawn.

Lindenwood is collaborating with the St. Charles County Department of Public Health and the St. Charles County Center for Advanced Professional Studies to host the LU Stress Less Fest on Sunday, April 10, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“This is a community-wide mental health and COVID vaccine awareness event,” said Amy Estlund, assistant professor of public health.

There will be activities to encourage positive mental and physical health.

These activities include the following:

  • Lindenwood University vs. Maryville University women’s lacrosse game at 4 p.m. (free entry to game)
  • Interactive mental health workshops
  • Art and Yoga stations
  • Make Your Own Journal and T-Shirt Tie-Dying sessions
  • COVID vaccinations for any eligible individuals – register for appointments at
  • Healthy foods and snacks

There will be 500 free event t-shirts given out, and the first 50 kids of 14 years old and younger to get vaccinated will receive an activity bag with prizes/goodies. 50 adults will receive a giveaway if they receive a COVID vaccination.

“This event will create a positive and supportive environment for all of us in our community,” Estlund said.
