Wellness in Windham Health Festival

Health Exhibit 2013: Call for Exhibitors

Do you have a health or wellness service that you’d like to share with the community? Brattleboro Memorial Hospital, The Brattleboro Retreat and Grace Cottage Hospital are working together to plan the second annual Wellness in Windham Health Festival, and exhibitors are invited to sign up now. This is a family-friendly fun and free event, which will be held on Saturday, September 21, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. on the front lawn of the Brattleboro Retreat. The Festival includes kids’ activities, healthy food concessions, live entertainment, prizes and giveaways, and activities focused on fitness, stress management and mindfulness practices. Exhibits are interactive as well as instructive.

Exhibitor space at the Health Festival is on a first-come basis, and almost all of last year’s participants are planning to return, so space is limited. For more information or for an exhibitor registration form, call 802-365-3738 or go to the exhibitors page.
