Children’s Trust Family Expo Pop-Up

Instead of the traditional one-day festival, the Children’s Trust Family Expo this year will take place as four separate Saturday pop-up events throughout Miami. The dates are Aug. 28 and Sept. 11, 18 and 25.

This annual expo was created to provide parents with access to educational, health and social services in a fun and festive atmosphere. The aim of splitting this event is “to make sure and reach the largest amount of our diverse population,” according to organizers

In the past, the expo has typically featured workshops and exhibitors showcasing information about topics such as after-school programs, injury prevention, vaccinations, programs for children with special needs, Pre-K registration, health insurance and more. Children’s entertainment has included arts and crafts activities, face painting, balloon sculptures, storytelling, free books and rock climbing.

  • South Miami-Dade
    10 a.m.-3 p.m. Aug. 28 at Sweet Home Community Campus, 10701 SW 184th St., Cutler Bay
