Healthy Family Fair

What is the Healthy Family Fair?

The Healthy Family Fair is a free community event that provides health and safety information for children and young families in a fun and interactive way.  The goal of the fair is to provide kids and parents an opportunity to learn about area resources in one spot.  Kids can check out the Grout Museum’s Cars and Coasters program, spin the Energy 106 prize wheel, and take pictures with Dora and Diego while their parents visit the various booths from community agencies and businesses.  And if families need a break from walking around to see all of the booths, they can enjoy entertainment on the main stage in the form of a magician, storyteller, and Zumba!

When is the Healthy Family Fair?

The Fair will be on February 23rd from 10:00am – 1:00pm at the Marshalltown Mall.

What attractions will be at the 2019 Healthy Family Fair?

The Science Center of Iowa will be at this year’s Healthy Family Fair!  The Science Center will have a booth which will include several miniature experiments that kids and parents will both enjoy!  Dora and Diego will be available throughout the fair for pictures.  Kids can get a balloon animal from Tulip and practice their soccer skills with the MCC Soccer team.  Energy 106 will be broadcasting live from the Healthy Family Fair, and guests will have the ability to spin their prize wheel!
