Florida Kids and Family Expo

The Florida Kids and Family Expo was created in 2014 by Central Florida moms that have lived and worked in our community for decades. A teacher, business owner, and employee, our team was always so busy working, they didn’t know what opportunities were available in their own community. So, they created MyCentralFloridaFamily.com and the Florida Kids and Family Expo to help other families discover what’s possible each year!

The Florida Kids and Family Expo brings approximately 150 pre-natal, baby, toddler, kid, teen and family exhibitors together with products, services and opportunities to enrich your family. From free trials to coupons, discounts and giveaways, not only will you discover new ideas, but you’ll also be able to try them out for free or save money along the way! The exhibits are free to interact with, from animal encounters to product trials to character meet and greets and so much more.

The Florida Kids and Family Expo is your annual opportunity to discover what Central Florida has to offer moms-to-be, babies, toddlers, kids, teens and families. Beat the heat and get indoors for some epic family fun while discovering new ideas and opportunities for your family.

Come enjoy over 150,000 AIR CONDITIONED square feet of everything for pre-natal moms, babies, toddlers, kids, teens and families! 150 Exhibitors. LIVE PERFORMANCES all day, both days. Interactive stations. Attractions. Bounce Houses. There is so much going on…we simply can’t list it all!

What’s new for 2017?

With help, we’ve been able to offer advanced tickets for just $5 each! Kids 2 and under are always free. That’s right…for less than the cost of going to the movies with your family, you can enjoy a full day of family fun at the Florida Kids and Family Expo! Tickets at the door will be $10 each.

AND, each paid ticket will come with 2 complimentary tickets for bounce houses and attractions. Bounce houses are 1 ticket each and attractions are 2 tickets each. You can combine tickets within your group! If you would like to have unlimited bounce house and attraction fun, you can always purchase an unlimited wristband for just $10. This helps to do two things: 1. We can make a donation to New Hope for Kids and 2. It helps us afford the cost of all the bounce houses, attractions, staffing, etc.

All interactions are also included with entry this year. Individual experiences will not require additional fees…it’s ALL INCLUDED!
