POUGHKEEPSIE – The community is invited to attend the Poughkeepsie Plaza’s 20th Annual Health and Wellness Fair, sponsored in part by Fox Oldies 98.9, on Saturday, Feb. 17 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Poughkeepsie Plaza is located on Rt.9 at 2600 South Road in Poughkeepsie.
The full day’s activities include interactive learning and educational experiences with over 45 vendors including local health care providers, professionals and nonprofit organizations.
Some vendors will offer free skin care analysis, hearing tests, food samples, a spinal analysis, product samples and much more.
Stretching the length of the plaza, stop by vendor tables for information and brochures, as well as samples, raffles and giveaways at select tables.
Exhibitors will be available to answer all your questions about nutrition, health insurance plans, back pain, senior care, podiatry, dental care, mental health, hearing, veteran’s affairs and more. A portion of the vendor proceeds from the health fair will benefit Julie’s Jungle.
Julie’s Jungle is the first fully accessible public playground being built in Dutchess County. The inspiration for an accessible playground began with a group of volunteer community members in 2012 who formed a 501(c)3, not-for-profit, and began fundraising to the make the vision a reality. Julie’s Jungle is now partially built and located in the Town of East Fishkill at 5 Old Lime Kiln Rd. The playground is open to the public while fundraising continues to complete the construction. Plans also include a sensory garden to be built alongside Julie’s Jungle. For more information visit www.JuliesJungle.org or www.Facebook.com/JuliesJungleatLimeKiln.
Vendors are not being accepted at this time since the maximum number of vendors has been reached for this event.
