"It was my first time at this fair [the Over 50 Fair] as a vendor and I was totally impressed. Everything ran very smoothly and was just as advertised. It was very well attended, well lit, tables were spaced out nicely and everyone was very helpful and friendly. I would definitely do this fair again next year and am even looking into other fairs that are also being run by the same person, Barbara Kaplan. She did an amazing job organizing this.”

"The Over 50 Fair has become an annual tradition for my wife and I; it's an event we honestly look forward to. This year's fair was no exception, and truly the best one yet. A wonderful way to spend an afternoon browsing the dozens and dozens of booths where we never seem to fail finding useful information and learning about new things that can benefit us. This year we found ourselves enjoying a wide variety of presentations including country line dancing, cooking demos, local celebrities and more. We're already looking forward to next year and seeing what new things they have in store.”

"I wanted to thank you for a terrific experience yesterday at the Over 50 Fair! It really was so organized and ran like clockwork. You and your people were terrific to work with! Thanks again.”

Deborah Zeitlen, COOL Z'S gluten free


"[I appreciated] all the information I had not seen or heard about before. I really like the fact that Barbara Kaplan makes her presence throughout the day, Many events that I have attended do not have the person running the event there all day. She does a great job and always asks if there is anything else she can add to make it better. She appreciates feedback positive as well as negative (I have never found negative).”
