Memory Fests are 2.5-hour workshops focused on “Your Amazing Brain,” a highly condensed version of our popular Brain Boosters class. They are presented by Memory Matters’ Memory Care Specialists, and are scheduled each January/February and September/October.

Memory Fests are offered at central community venues, such as churches and other nonprofit operations. We typically schedule one “East” version for the Island, and one “West” version for the Bluffton/Sun City area.

A nominal fee is charged, which includes a light snack. Please click here to check our Calendar for the next scheduled Memory Fest.
