There are a huge range of exhibitors, from organic cosmetics to naturopathic medicine.

“The fair is a great place to gain inspiration if you are an eating or exercise nut,” said Shara Mendozo, event organizer of the Kelowna Wellness Fair.

“There are professionals who can help you create an eating and exercise plan that you will be excited about. Whether you have specific health ailments or are a busy mom with kids at home, we can help you take care of yourself.”

Those attending are encouraged to try something new whether it’s a healthy snack, a new skin-care regime, or a service such as acupuncture.

“Taking care of yourself allows you to better take care of those around you,” said Chris Madison another organizer.

Organizers are also encouraging guests to consider a free on-site hearing health check by Connect Hearing.
