Second Heights Holistic Fair adds activities, sponsors and a local cause
Building on the success of the first Heights Holistic Fair held in February, a second, expanded fair will be held on April 13 and 14. The fair will take place in the heart of the Coventry neighborhood, and will offer a wider range of information and activities for all ages. It will also serve as a platform to generate donations to Friends of Heights Libraries.
According to event organizer Judith Eugene of Cleveland Heights, products, services and information on holistic health and sustainable living will be offered. Experts will be on hand both days to provide information on a variety of topics.
For the April fair, Eugene and her planning partner, Pat Uhr, have reached out to community organizations and a wider variety of vendors for support and participation. “We are picturing these as fun community events,” Eugene said. “We would love for them to become gatherings that the whole community looks forward to and benefits from.”
As an example, Family Connections will lead a children’s craft project to make musical instruments, which children can then use to participate in a family-friendly drum circle.
Other sponsors of the fair include FutureHeights—the Observer’s nonprofit publisher—and Tommy’s Restaurant, which has donated food for the fair. Friends of Coventry Village is lending promotional support. All proceeds from food sales at the Heights Holistic Fair will be donated to the Friends of Heights Libraries for unrestricted use.
Activities at the fair will include drum circles, musical performances, healing treatments, yoga classes and a craft project for children. Personal readings from psychic mediums will also be available.
The fair will be held at the Open Office Community Space in the former Coventry School at 2843 Washington Blvd. in Cleveland Heights. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. Admission is $5 each day and includes access to all of the activities and speakers. Admission is free for age 12 and under.
The Holistic Fair is presented jointly by Eugene’s Cleveland Heights-based Loving Hands Yoga and Reiki, and Uhr’s Harmonic Journeys.
