This year we’re expanding upon that vision to spotlight ExpO+ as an afternoon street-fair moment with additional vendors, food, performances, family activities, wellness information, and more. Our goal is to connect folks to resources that support their wellness in a myriad of ways, from enhancing awareness to direct care, to information on youth services, mental health, delicious food, crafts, and more. 

Who can apply? 

  • Health Service Organizations 
  • Mindfulness-focused services 
  • Recovery based services 
  • Providers who can offer preventative healthcare information 
  • Organizations offering direct health services or screenings to the public 
  • Those who make wellness-based products 
  • Those providing youth engagement around health and empowerment  
  • Farmer’s Market vendors
