9th Annual Homestead/Florida City Holiday Health & Resource Fair
December 06, 2022
Miami, Fla. – For the last 8 years, the Homestead/Florida City Holiday Health and Resource Fair has provided the South Dade community with free critical health resources, health and dental screenings for children and adults, community resources and education. The event traditionally hosts over 2,000 guests and provides free food, toys and children’s books along with fun activities for the whole family. We are excited to bring this back to an in-person event after hosting drive-thru fairs in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19.
This year, families will be able to visit with local vendors, enjoy music, and children activities such as face painting, airbrush tattoos and balloon artist. Other activities include free food distribution by Farm Share, health and dental screenings for children and adults, and much more! Over 40 exhibitors will be onsite providing free education, resources, and information to the community. Raffles will be conducted throughout the event giving away wonderful prizes! There will also be 4 mobile units onsite providing services, screenings, education and giveaways. They include Caring for Miami, the FIU 3D Mammography Center, the UM Sylvester Game Changer, and the Borinquen HEADS UP mobile unit.
This event would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors and community partners. Our sponsors include Portofino Pediatrics, Beautiful Minds PPEC, Community Medical Group, Gang Alternative, Inc., Healthy Start Coalition of Miami-Dade, UM Sylvester Cancer Center, United Healthcare Community Plan, CRUSADA-FIU, Homestead Hospital, HUMANA, Liberty Dental Plan of Florida, Main Street Children’s Dentistry & Orthodontics of Homestead, Molina Healthcare, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, and Sunshine Health. We are also grateful for the continuous support of the Health Council of South Florida and the 30+ community partners participating in the event annually providing resources and education for the community.
