The Penticton Wellness Fair is an annual fair that showcases health and wellness products and services for the mind, body and soul. There are a huge array of vendors each year, from weight loss products to chiropractors, essential oils, organic products, massage therapists and many more.
Shara Mendoza has followed in her father, Chris Madsen’s, footsteps and founded the Kelowna Wellness Fair in 2010. Her desire to connect the Kelowna residents with the many different health and wellness services in the Okanagan has been a huge hit in the area. Shara’s passion for wellness stems from learning how to manage a serious auto-immune condition, and her excitement to share what she’s learned with others.
She is co-owner of Body & Soul Productions (Kelowna, Vernon and Penticton Wellness Fairs), and also co-owns Health & Wellness Productions (The Health and Wellness Show in Abbotsford).
Chris Madesn founded the Vernon Wellness Fair in 2004 after a meditation at Cousin’s Bay, where he visioned a large event that would bring together healers from the community with those seeking better health.
Chris is an accomplished guitarist, a professional musician for 45 years, and founder of the Living Love’s Vision organization. Chris takes his health very seriously and can be found making organic food from his garden, meditating and spending the day hiking the forests and hills surrounding Vernon.
Chris co-owns Body & Soul Productions, which hosts annual wellness fairs in Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton.
