In addition to the health-related displays and free health screenings, the fair offers the opportunity to participate in interactive presentations and a raffle. Visitors may pick up a sticker sheet at any of the exhibit tables.

The fair also will feature stage performances. Demonstrations will include fast-paced exercise workouts by ESSENTRICS of Lombard, martial arts moves by Sky Center students and a yoga demonstration by Glenbard High School District 87 students.
