Boyertown Wellness Fair Returning for Its 16th Year

BOYERTOWN PA – A healthy walk with neighbors and friends will launch the start of the 16th annual Wellness Fair presented by the Wellness Council of Boyertown, a program of Boyertown Area Multi-Service, on March 18 (2023; Saturday) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Boyertown Area Senior High School, 120 Monroe St.

The Wellness Fair is a popular family event that typically attracts hundreds of visitors of all ages. It’s free to attend and open to the public.

Its activities begin at 9 a.m. with a “community impact walk,” followed at 9:30 a.m. by the “Running With The Bears” competition at 9:30 a.m. During the run, elementary school students and their family members compete to see which school can complete the most laps. The winning school gets to show off the coveted Healthy Bear award in its trophy case.

The wellness fair officially opens at 10 a.m. It offers a variety of health and wellness-related vendors, a youth obstacle course, exercise demonstrations by Bears Den Fitness and CrossFit Kids, the YMCA, and Visions Dance Studio. A variety of door prizes also will be available. “Senior Walking Bingo” starts at 10:30 a.m.

A “Kids Celebrity Chef” healthy cooking competition and community judging will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Six elementary school finalists will bring their delicious healthy dishes for the panel of judges and community to taste.

The council welcomes all health and wellness-related businesses and non-profits to join the event as vendors or sponsors. Vendors will be able to sell products in its “Wellness Market Place.” The cost for tables for vendors selling products is $75 each; the price for non-selling vendors is $50 each.
