Marlborough to Host New England's Largest Holistic Health & Wellness Event

The show must go on! The 14th Annual Natural Living Expo, New England’s largest holistic health and wellness event, will return to Marlborough’s Best Western Royal Plaza Hotel & Trade Center on November 13th and 14th, 2021, after the cancellation of 2020’s expo due to the COVID pandemic.

The much-awaited, annual, alternative health event, which attracts a wide variety of exhibitors and speakers, draws thousands of attendees looking for the best holistic healthcare information, practitioners and products. Presented by Spirit of Change, New England’s largest free holistic magazine, the Natural Living Expo provides a unique opportunity to connect in person with alternative health and nutrition experts, healing schools and organizations, wellness products, premium natural beauty care lines, and transformational and spiritual offerings you will not find gathered together anywhere else in New England.

A $25 weekend admission includes access to the Trade Center with 185 exhibitors, healthy food vendors both inside and outdoors, plus over 50 workshops held at the adjoining Best Western Hotel. A $4 admission discount is available for tickets purchased in advance online, which also includes a free expo tote bag.

Exhibits at the Trade Center include natural health products and information, trusted wellness consultants, access to spiritual and transformational opportunities, talented intuitive readers, mini healing sessions, self-care demos, natural beauty care, thousands of crystals for sale, unique jewelry, clothing, home décor and holiday shopping plus product samples to taste and try in person.

“This is the only venue in New England with access to so many unique and high quality natural healing exhibitors from around the country,” commented event founder and producer, Michella Brudner. “If you are interested in alternative medicine, especially since we now know how important it is to keep our immune systems strong in the face of COVID and future viruses, the Natural Living Expo is the place to start your learning or expand on it. Come talk to our exhibitors to learn how to boost your immunity naturally.”

The expo schedule offers over 50 one-hour workshops included in the weekend admission. A sample of workshop titles includes: “Inflammation: Why You Have It and What You Can Do About It Naturally”; “Manifesting Protection and Immunity with Crystals”; “Instant Pain Elimination”; “Centering Meditation and Empathic Defense”; “Science and Dowsing: Who Answers When I Dowse?”; “Increase Your After-Death Communication Skills”; plus many, many more.

Precautions in place that will allow this year’s expo to proceed more safely include a more spacious exhibit hall layout with wider aisles, additional cleaning protocols, workshops seated at only 50% room capacity, and a one-hour break between workshops in each room. While the Natural Living Expo echoes the advice of the CDC that both fully vaccinated and unvaccinated people should still wear a mask in public indoor settings, masks are optional at the event, following local regulations in the city of Marlborough.

Weekend admission to the expo is $21 in advance online, and $25 at the door. Kids under 12 years old are free. Free re-admission on Sunday is available with your wristband. Onsite parking is free.
