Health & Harvest Festival Returns!


The popular Health & Harvest Festival is back! Healthy West Orange will host the event at the Winter Garden Farmers’ Market on Saturday, November 6th.

Fun at the Health & Harvest Festival

“It’s a celebration of beautiful weather and healthy living with our amazing partners,” shares Lesa Boettcher, chief operating officer for the foundation for a Healthier West Orange. “We want to engage our local residents in the health and wellness resources in our vibrant community.” 

“We turn the farmers market up a notch with lots of fun things to do,” she adds. The festival, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., includes fitness classes, health screenings, CPR classes, cooking demonstrations, and nutrition classes. Visitors can also enjoy giveaways, free games, and more. 

The event offers the perfect opportunity to try something new. Guests can participate in yoga or karate and even test out a rowing machine. Need a break? Don’t worry! Spots to relax will be scattered throughout the festival as well.

“Our goal is to share all the valuable community resources in one place,” Boettcher explains. You’ll see familiar community faces throughout the event, including Orlando Health, Roper YMCA, and the Winter Garden and West Oaks Libraries. Plus, Healthy West Orange farming partners will showcase their best gardening techniques.
