Health fair comes to town

A wonderland of health and wellness is coming to Vernon this weekend.

The Vernon Wellness Fair showcases over 70 products and services from the health and wellness industry throughout the Okanagan.

The idea for the fair came to be about 13 years ago after founder Chris Madsen had a mediation session at Cousin’s Bay, near Vernon.

"It's a way for those that have solutions to network with the community," Madsen said. "In the traditional model we just have drug stores and doctors, but there is so much more to healing the body, soul and spirit."

He visioned an event that brought together the public with a myriad of health and wellness services and products available.

He turned his vision into a reality and began the popular annual fair.

"With every problem that we have the solution is attached to it," Madsen said. "Almost always that solution is not clearly evident, so we go to authorities."

"It's really important for people to know the alternative ways so that they can problem solve in awesome ways."

The event takes place on March 3 and 4, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday at the Vernon Recreation Centre.

Admission is free.
