What is the expo?
The Florida Kids and Family Expo is a 2-day event at the Orange County Convention Center. Why the convention center? Because it’s the only indoor facility large enough to host the largest kids and family expo in the country! Orlando is the kid capital of the world with theme parks, entertainment, fun dining options, and more, so where better to host a kids and family expo?
The Florida Kids and Family Expo was created in 2014 by two Central Florida moms that wanted to help families like theirs find options for education, entertainment, sports, services, products, finances, medical, dental, home improvement, and more in the area. It’s an expo that merges over 200 exhibitors with fun-filled activities for kids. In other words, your family can enjoy a day (or two) full of discovery and fun for the whole family that’s indoors in August, and with more to do and experience than you can accomplish in one weekend.
They work tirelessly to bring in as many exhibitors as possible for you to connect with. As two moms themselves, they never knew what options and opportunities were available in Central Florida, so they went to work to do the legwork for YOU. Now, under one roof and in one day, you can have hundreds of new ideas and resources at your fingertips, hopefully making your job as a parent just a little bit easier.
And, don’t worry, while you’re busy discovering all that’s possible for your family, your kids can interact with animals, meet their favorite characters, ride a pony, watch a live show, learn to use a lightsaber, play games, make arts and crafts, and so much more! There is simply too much fun to list it all. The only way to experience it is to attend!
Tickets are discounted to $8 in advance. Parking at the convention center is normally $20-35, but it’s discounted for you to just $10 (they wish it was free too).These two moms work hard to keep the entry fee to this event as low as possible so that families of all incomes can enjoy the day. Most activities are included with admission and there will be opportunities to enhance your day with independent exhibitors. No matter what, there will be more family fun that is included with the price of admission than you can get to in a day.
