Marquette’s Holistic Health Fair was held on a sunny Saturday at Northern Michigan University’s North Center. This unique event offered the community an opportunity to explore various stress-relieving activities and aspects of health and wellness. With 37 vendors providing services such as massage, energy work and henna body art, attendees had plenty of options to choose from.
Event Coordinator Michelle Nichols shared that this fair was a revival of a longstanding holistic health fair in the area. The aim of the event was to honor the past while bringing something new to it. Despite being the first of its kind, the fair brought renewed energy and offerings to the community.
Aside from services, attendees had the chance to purchase products such as crystals, soaps and essential oils. There was even a therapy dog present to help calm participants and provide a peaceful presence at the event.
The fair rekindled a focus on holistic health in Marquette, providing the community with diverse options for relaxation and well-being. Organizers managed to bring this new version of the fair to life despite the challenges brought about by COVID-19, offering attendees a rejuvenating experience.
