A Holistic Health Fair took place in Marquette on Saturday at Northern Michigan University’s Northern Center, bringing together vendors and presentations to promote stress-relieving activities. With 37 vendors offering services such as massage, energy work, and henna body art, attendees had plenty of options to explore.
The event was a reboot of a previous holistic health fair that had been held in the community for 20 years. Event Coordinator Michelle Nichols aimed to pay homage to the old fair while adding a fresh perspective. This year marked the first time the fair was held under this new name and format.
In addition to services, attendees were able to purchase products such as crystals, soaps, and essential oils. The therapy dog present at the event helped calm attendees and provided a soothing presence throughout the day.
The fair brought renewed focus on holistic health to Marquette by providing the community with various options for relaxation and well-being. Despite challenges posed by COVID-19 pandemic organizers were able to bring this new iteration of the fair to life offering attendees diverse and rejuvenating experience.
