The Wellness and Spirit Fair will be held once again this year.
The bi-yearly fair hosts many different exhibitors, mostly those with metaphysical or holistic practices.
Gypsy Hart, event organizer, says no MLM companies are allowed at the fair.
“I’m perfectly fine with them doing that kind of business,” prefaced Hart, “I’ve nothing against that, it’s just that it’s a different kind of demographic that it’s targeting. I really wanted to keep [the fair] really pure with people who are following their creative direction.”
Hart says it’s been interesting to see how the pandemic has encouraged people to follow their passions and open up a small business, and she’s happy to provide a platform for it.
The event will be held at the Cavallotti Hall on September 17th from 10am to 5pm, and Hart says she enjoys the hall’s grounds.
“I really like using that venue, it’s kind of like private property, but it’s trees and grass, and it’s just a really nice energy there,” said Hart. “They’ve got admission, free parking… So I’m looking forward to running this on the 17th.”
As the Nanaimo Night Market ends, some familiar faces from the market will make an appearance at the Wellness and Spirit Fair.
The fair is also supporting the Nanaimo Youth Services Association, and asks anyone interested to donate to the charity that assists youth in areas of ‘life skills, job readiness, employment assistance, housing and personal wellness.’
The fair is still accepting new exhibitors to register. Interested vendors are encouraged to fill out a form to be at the fair.
