When I Grow Up


Does your kid ever wonder what it would be like to tap dance on stage, teach in a classroom, or launch into space?

At the Partner’s in Parenting When I Grow Up Festival, kids can plant a seed with a farmer, try a pirouette with a ballerina, listen to a heartbeat with a doctor, cook with a chef and so much more!  On the Mainstage, kids can learn about artistic and entertainment fields through children’s musicians, storytimes, dance, yoga, and other exciting performances throughout the day. Guests who register prior to the event will receive a Swag Bag filled with coupons and goodies! (One per family while supplies last.) 

For the littlest explorers, a Baby-Friendly Room, stocked with toys from the Toybrary, will be available for rolling and crawling. Parents are invited to a little self-care by participating in group exercise classes that can be done with young children present! Families will also be able to try out music and movement classes designed for young children. The schedule of events will be listed on the website as it becomes available.

A Mother’s Room will be available for a quiet, safe space for babies to eat and sleep. Moms can visit with a lactation consultant and learn more about our community partners specializing in breastfeeding. We will also accept your diaper donations for the Austin Diaper Bank.

A raffle benefiting Partners in Parenting will be held at several key times throughout the day. 

The When I Grow Up Festival will be held at the Asian American Resource Center, a City of Austin facility in the heart of Central East Austin. This beautiful space has lots of free parking, with additional parking space available right next door. The tree-lined Great Lawn provides a lovely place for kids and families to run and play. Food trucks will be invited to park next to the Great Lawn so that families can access lunch on-site.
