If you're on the lookout for new ways to keep your body and mind in the best shape possible, you may want to consider stopping by the 3rd annual Del Mar Healthy Living Festival. The weekend-long event will be held at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on March 22nd & 23rd.
After two increasingly successful past events, the Healthy Living Festival is back and is planned to be larger than ever. With both planned demonstrations and two-hundred scheduled exhibitors (some local to San Diego, and others traveling in from all over the country), there will be no shortage of activities and useful knowledge being shared throughout the two-day event.
Planned demonstrations include professional chefs showcasing different ways you can prepare delicious and healthy meals at home with ease, energetic belly dancing performances, and helpful tips and advice from renowned health experts. For a more interactive experience, you can also participate in free Zumba, yoga and dance classes held at many times throughout the two days.
Professionals will also be on-site offering free massages, and a number of exhibitors will be offering free medical testings and screenings. Organic food and beverage companies will also be distributing free samples of their products.
The Healthy Living Festival will be open from 10am – 6pm on Saturday, March 22nd, and from 10am – 5pm on Sunday, March 23rd. Entry is free for the public throughout the entire event.
There's no doubt that living a healthy lifestyle is high on the priority list for a huge portion of San Diego residents. Perhaps that's part of the reason why last year's festival experienced a 50% increase in attendees over the first event. That trend is anticipated to continue - according to the Healthy Living Festival's promoters, this year is expected to see another 50% or higher spike in visitors.
The festival is being put on by successful, long-time event promoter Warren Cook. Cook, also a health and fitness enthusiast, has been promoting popular events since 1971. For the past sixteen years, one of his most known has been the three-day long Sacramento Arts Festival – one of California's largest showcases for artists and craftspeople.
