When I Grow up 2019

Does your kid ever wonder what it would be like to play music onstage, wear a police badge, or go fishing with a park ranger? At the Partners in Parenting When I Grow Up Festival on Saturday, January 19, 2019 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, kids can do all of that and more. The main event will occur at The For the City Center, 500 E St. John's Ave. Food and drinks will be sold onsite from a variety of great food trucks.

Tables will line the venue and professionals will interact with the children to share the tools of their trade. 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.
