The Holistic Health Fair took place at Northern Michigan University’s Northern Center on Saturday, offering the community a unique opportunity to explore stress-relieving activities. With 37 vendors focusing on multiple aspects of health and well-being, attendees had plenty of options to explore.
The event was organized by Event Coordinator Michelle Nichols, who noted that this fair was a reboot of a previous holistic health fair that had been a staple in the Marquette community for 20 years. This year marked the first of its kind, bringing new energy and offerings to the community.
Attendees had the opportunity to purchase products like crystals, soaps, and essential oils in addition to services such as massage, energy work, and henna body art. There was even a therapy dog present to help calm attendees and provide a soothing presence at the event.
The fair brought a renewed focus on holistic health to Marquette, providing the community with an array of options for relaxation and well-being. Despite the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, the event’s organizers were able to bring this new iteration of the fair to life, offering attendees a diverse and rejuvenating experience.
