High Desert Medical Group and Heritage Health Care are proud to present the 32nd Annual Senior Expo to be held at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds at 2551 W. Ave. H from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 20th. At  HDMG, we believe that laughter positively impacts patients lives and for this reason, the theme this year is “Health, Home & Happiness…Laughter is the Best Medicine”

Upon arrival to the fairgrounds, attendees will enter through Gate #1. Free parking and ample handicap spaces will be available for the convenience of our seniors. The gates for parking will open at 8:00 a.m., however, entrance to the event buildings, will not open until 9:00 a.m.


The Van Dam Pavilion (also known as the health screening pavilion) will open its doors at 9:30am. Senior Expo offers a full day of entertainment, giveaways, free bingo, free health screenings and seasonal flu shots for seniors 62 and over. Health screenings will include: bone density, cholesterol, glucose, Pulmonary screening and more.

The H.W. Hunter Pavilion will house a variety of vendors offering information on senior products and services. Health plan sales representatives will be available with 2023 benefit options and enrollment information. In addition, there will be free Bingo, free entertainment, Senior of the Year and Veteran Community Service Award ceremonies-beginning at 11:00 a.m., and at 1:00pm, a special guest appearance by Vicki Lawrence, famed actress, singer, dancer and comedian, best known for her work on the Carol Burnett show, of which she was a part from 1967 to 1978.


Again, this year, seniors 62 years or older, will receive a free lunch, courtesy of the City of Lancaster, served from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Free shuttle services will be provided, courtesy of Antelope Ambulance, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. between the city bus stop at Avenue H and the fairgrounds.
