Why should I attend?

If you’re looking for ideas and information to enrich your family’s lives in Central Florida, this is the event for you. While your kids are making things, trying new things, playing, bouncing, picking up free stuff, sliding, riding, discovering, creating, watching, running, eating and more, you can capture new ideas and opportunities for your kids and family. It’s an indoor, air-conditioned event, which is perfect for August! As your kids head back to school, find all of the resources that are available to you in your own backyard! For less than the cost of going to the movies, you can enjoy a fun family day together!



Where is the Orange County Convention Center?

It’s located at 9800 International Drive in Orlando (see driving directions button above for more information on getting to the convention center). A short drive from anywhere in Central Florida. Bring your strollers, wear comfortable shoes and come to play!


What is the 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 are parents saying?

We can’t list them all, but here’s a sample:

“Thank you to everybody who made the Florida Kids and Family Expo possible. My kids had an absolutely terrific time and want to come back “everyday!” Even my husband and I were talking about what a great time we had. It was the perfect way to spend the day with the kids…you guys thought of everything!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!” –Sehia Q., Mom 

“We had such a fun time yesterday! We never ran out of things to do.” -Molly L., Mom 

“One of the best events we have been to.” -John B., Dad 

“We had a blast today and got so many great resources for this newly moved in family! Thank you!” -Jara V., Mom


What are just SOME of the things you will experience?

We strive to make as much included with admission as possible, but there will be some additional costs such as attractions and bounce houses, food, and more. We’ll have all of the details for you as we get closer to the expo. Exhibitors may offer separate experiences and may charge for those opportunities such as face painting, train rides, tattoos, etc.

You’ve seen them on America’s Got Talent…now, see them HERE!

The Menestrelli Circus Dog Show will be at the 2018 Florida Kids and Family Expo! Be sure to come out and see them in person.
