Equally important to having fun is learning about health, wellness, and your environment. The fair will feature 50 vendors offering materials and services to help you live a healthier life.

The fair also features Sustainable Melrose which is a group of civic minded organizations coming together to raise awareness of and support for our shared community responsibilities in environmental stewardship, social well-being, and economic prosperity over the long term. In collaboration with the Healthy Melrose organizers and the city, Sustainable Melrose will be taking steps to make the fair a “zero waste” and “zero carbon” event.

In addition to the electric vehicle test drives, our awesome Sustainable Melrose vendors will have great interactive demonstrations.
