The 2017 theme, "MUSIC! MUSIC! MUSIC!" salutes vibrant living, intelligence, curiosity, creativity, humor, and honors the lives of older adults. It opens doors to new sounds, creative adventures, and encourages trips down memory lane tied to favorite musical experiences. Under the theme's umbrella, we focus on lifestyle information from A to Z: from active living and educational opportunities, social connections, community involvement, fitness, wise computer use, and travel, to local adventures, ingenuity, pursuit of new interests, health concerns, in-home aging, volunteer options, classes, retirement housing options, legal information, financial edification, voter registration—and more.

Your presentation of services, opportunities, and activities pertinent to older adults is heart of the Fair. Housing, home care, auto and home safety, legal issues, education, personal healthcare options, nutrition, volunteering, medical information, counseling and screenings, family activities, clubs, hobbies, fitness, travel, dance, fashion, scrapbooking, photography, computers, smart phones, art, memoir writing, pets, and finances are some categories that come to mind. Spectacular booth presentation ideas are limitless! Use your imagination. Exhibitors are encouraged to offer healthful treats and/or giveaways relevant to senior needs.

Allow us to best publicize and advertise the Fair and your organization. If you plan health screenings, fitness demos, or other special activities at your booth, let us know on your application, no matter which option you choose to apply in. The information you provide will help us promote your booth.
