Spring Fling

Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) concerns and restrictions, the

2020 SPRING FLING Senior Resource Fair has been cancelled. 

 The Butler County Department on Aging is deeply saddened we are not able to have this wonderful event. Please join us for the 2021 fair on May 5, 2021.

SPRING FLING is an annual event held in El Dorado, Kansas, at three locations: Civic Center (201 E. Central), Community Building (206 N. Griffith), and the El Dorado Senior Center (210 E. Second). The fair has a great variety of booths for participants to visit. Vendors include agencies representing employment, home health care, disability services, veterans' services, senior centers, hospice, long term care, insurance, legal services, senior apartments, and much, much more. Each booth has lots of information on what they do and a door prize to win. It is always a fun, entertaining time.

SPRING FLING is the largest event in Butler County focused on seniors and their caregivers. For 2020, the fair is having a garden party theme... "Bloom Where You Are Planted." Spring Fling is always a great way to have fun while learning about the services, trends, and opportunities for today's older adults and caregivers.

OVERVIEW OF SPRING FLING: The fair attracts approximately 800 visitors each year with over 120 booths to visit. Information, door prizes and giveaways are at every booth.

Free Health Screenings are held at the Community Building. Document shredding is offered at the El Dorado Senior Center by Flinthills Services. Televisions are given away as a grand prize at each of the three locations. A free photo booth is at the Civic Center.  Lunches are available at the Civic Center and Community Building at a cost of $7. This year, attendees will get a sponsor punch card. Once all the sponsors have signed the card, the card will be included in a prize drawing. As you can see, there is a lot to see and do!

 A free shuttle helps visitors park at any of the three locations and ride the shuttle to the other locations. Free golf cart rides help people get from their cars to the Civic Center or Community Building.
