Day of the Child Fair 2018

The Chula Vista Community Collaborative, in collaboration with other community-based organizations and business sponsors, is proud to present the 18th Annual Day of the Child Community FUN Fair. The event’s theme is Children’s Opportunities, Our Responsibilities.

The event is a free family event that provides resources to keep children safe, healthy and well informed of services in the community. The event focuses on providing a safer and healthier environment for young people by promoting family/community togetherness. Over 100 informational and interactive booths are anticipated to outreach and serve children and families. There will be plenty of fun activities such as entertainment, face painting, performers, dance contests, puppets, magic show, story time, games and much more. The Day of the Child event is designed to introduce kids and families to healthy and interactive activities.

The event will be held at: 

Location: Memorial Park on 3rd Avenue and Park in Chula Vista
Date: Saturday, April 28, 2018
From: 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Local community-based organizations will be providing invaluable information on children’s health, safety, educational brochures and interactive activities. At the main stage, entertainment will include performances by local schools and local talent. A second stage will feature interactive activities, including story reading, dance contests, raffles, and much more. Giveaways and other interactive entertainment will be part of the event program, as well. Last year (2017), the Day of the Child Community Fair had over 100 informational and interactive booths that served approximately 5,000 children and families.

Together we can make a difference in the lives of children. It is our responsibility.
Come and join the fun…
