In 2020, Covid-19 forced the cancellation of The Children’s Trust Family Expo. In 2021, the annual event returns with a new format.
From late August through September, The Family Expo will hold four, free Pop-Up style events throughout Miami-Dade County. These pop-events will partner with existing outreach efforts in the community and will take place on Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
In prior years, The Family Expo was a one-day event at one location. The revamped format offers expanded locations and opportunities for guests.
At the Pop-Up events, Trust-funded providers and other exhibitors specializing in a wide-array of children’s services will have booths. There will also be exhibits highlighting everything from afterschool programming to health and wellness. Like at previous Family Expos, there will be character appearances, animal shows, live music, backpack giveaways and other surprises.
“After a year of uncertainty, we are excited that The Children’s Trust can bring the Family Expo back to Miami-Dade,” said The Children’s Trust President and CEO James R. Haj. “Not only does it provide a day of fun for our children, but it also showcases all of the valuable resources available to the families in our communities.”
