There is an attachment for the Access Oak Ridge Fair, which is being held Saturday, October 7, 2023 at the Oak Ridge Civic Center & Senior Center.


Access Oak Ridge: Creating Community for All Abilities is a resource and awareness event co-hosted by the City of Oak Ridge, Periodic Tables, and the United Way of Anderson County. The fair has the dual goals of providing resource information to people with disabilities and their loved ones and inviting members of the community to have fun while learning about people living with disabilities, their accomplishments and how we can plan communities so that all can live, work, and play to their full potential. There will be 50 vendors, 20 demonstrations, 10 speakers, art, music, free food, games, prizes and more. We extend a special invitation to the faith community and hope this opportunity will provide information and inspiration to better serve our neighbors. It’s going to be an amazing event!
