Our health fairs are a good chance for Wilmington residents to see a health specialist, receive free screenings for risks like respiratory disease and diabetes, and meet with dozens of health and wellness experts in their area and learn about community resources and initiatives.
At this year’s health fair, we’ll also have health organizations on hand to help the community enroll in Covered California healthcare coverage before the March 31 deadline. There’ll also be live music and healthy food from local restaurants like Hojas Tea House & Cafe.

To print flyer (pdf, huge file size):
The fair will run from 10am to 2pm. It’ll take place along the portion of N street between Wilmington Health Center and Tzu Chi, and in the Tzu Chi parking lot. Parking is available at First Baptist Church across the street from Tzu Chi, and at the Wilmington Health Center parking lot. No oversized vans or trucks will be allowed in either parking lot. Carpooling is encouraged!
Please arrive by 9am and stop by the vendor sign-in table (coffee + bagels provided).
We’ll have complimentary food for the community. To encourage participation at the fair and keep a steady queue, we’ll issue a “Fair Pass” that requires five stickers from five different booths or screeners. Once a resident receives five stickers, they’re free to try any of the available food. We’ll be issuing these stickers to each vendor. If you’re a vendor, you will not need a fair pass to get food!
If you are volunteering for the full day, please arrive by 8am to assist in setup, and plan to stay no later than 3pm to allow for tear-down. Upon arrival, please ask for Ata or Meghan from HCBF.
We’ll need volunteer assistance for the following tasks: a) setting up tables, chairs, and pop-up canopies; b) sign-in/welcome table; c) checking for complete “fair passes” at any food stalls (see above); d) providing water to vendors; e) translating requests and questions if fluent in Spanish.
