The Marquette Holistic Health Fair took place on Saturday at Northern Michigan University’s Northern Center, offering attendees the opportunity to explore stress-relieving activities and various aspects of health and well-being. With 37 vendors providing services such as massage, energy work, and henna body art, there was plenty for attendees to discover.
Event Coordinator Michelle Nichols stated 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 while paying homage to the old fair.
Attendees were able to purchase products like crystals, soaps, and essential oils in addition to receiving services. A therapy dog was also present to help calm attendees and provide a soothing presence at the event.
The fair brought renewed focus on holistic health to Marquette by providing attendees with an array of options for relaxation and well-being. Despite challenges brought by COVID-19 pandemic, organizers were successful in bringing this new iteration of the fair to life, offering attendees a diverse and rejuvenating experience.
