By Melissa Shrader October 15, 2017

Thank you to everyone who came to the fair! 

We had a great turn out. Some wonderful sensory tables, some great entertainment from Jalapena The Clown sponsored by Helping Parents Parent, Face Painting by Smilen Faces and special guest local author Natasha Wing. I truly appreciate all the vendors, parents, and guardians who came out to play, gather information and give information on all the wonderful Preschools, Activities, and Resources that our community has to offer. I also want to offer a sincere Thank You to everyone who helped out with the fair. Without you this event wouldn't have been as successful or run as smoothly as it did. Thank you all so very much! For those parents, guardians and kids that attended Thank you for coming and enjoying the fair. I hope you all got some wonderful information, learned something new and came away with just what you needed.


Ok! It's this Saturday the 27th of January and you have to come and see who is here! We have something for almost everyone this year.

The Preschool & Kid’s activities Fair has been a long-standing event of 16+ years (some call it a tradition) that offers the opportunity for parents to get information from several local preschools, schools, Academy’s, sports camps, music, sports, art, Educational enhancement, entertainment, and other local businesses that have activities for kids from newborn to 12+. 

We will have some great Preschools, Sports, Health, Parent Resources and other wonderful community resources here at the fair this year. Check out the final list below! If you are interested in attending the event and finding out more about local preschools register here. (Registration is for headcount for refreshments only - event is FREE to attend) 

We have some fun planned too! Debbie Paulison from Smilen Faces Face Painting, Jalepenia The Clown Sponsored by Helping Parents Parent and we are honored to have Natasha Wing local author of, "The Night Before", series! She will be available to speak about her new publication ,"Bagel In Love", from 10:30 - Noon January 27th at The Lincoln Center.

This fair has always been very successful for the community by getting parents connected with preschools, sports organizations, summer camps, and kid related businesses of all kinds. Parents/Grandparents/caregivers can visit and get information from several schools/academy’s/businesses at one time, do comparisons and sign up on the spot if they desire, or walk away well-educated on what this area has to offer for their kids. If you are looking to find information on everything “kid” then this is the event to come to.

You are all invited to be a part of this event, located at the West Canyon Ballroom of the Lincoln Center. The fair is free to the public and is a wonderful way for families with children of all ages interested in finding information for their children to get introduced to the local representatives in our community from a variety of local resources. 

Fort Collins Macaroni Kid hosts the event at the Lincoln Center with some great volunteers from the community.
