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 24th from 10:00 – 1:00 at the Marshalltown Mall.

What’s new at the 2018 Healthy Family Fair?

We have some exciting new guests coming to the fair this year!  We will have Wonder Woman and the Dark Knight at the fair, and a very popular Polynesian Princess will also be there!  We are also thrilled to welcome the Grout Museum and their Cars and Coasters program where kids can get hands on and “experiment with the scientific principles of gravity, momentum and motion through the excitement of toy cars and 24 feet of Blu Track racing strips.”  We also have some new things happening on the main stage this year.
