Food will also be available along with produce at the grand opening of the New Carlisle Farmer's Market.

According to CCCHD, Clark County ranks high in obesity rates in both adults and children. The county also reports low rates of physical activity. They hope the fair will induce members of the community to utilize some of the resources available to them that are free or low cost, including bike trails and parks.

The Clark County Combined Health District is dedicated to providing information on health, wellness and environmental issues to its community through promotion of wellness, prevention of injury, and prevention of disease, according to their website.
