Are you a new parent or the parents of a toddler? This Victoria event is not one to miss out on! The Vancouver Island Baby Fair returns this year to the Pearkes Arena in Victoria, bringing with it a giant selection of baby and toddler products and activities for everyone to enjoy! This is considered to be the shopping adventure for moms and dads, so see for yourself all of the latest fun, hip, and “making life easier” clothes, accessories, and products for babies and toddlers.
Don’t miss out on seeing the cutest feature of the Baby Fair, which are the baby races! At 11am and 2:30pm each day of the fair, crawlers under 12 months old can race in a series of heats, leading up to one final championship race. If you’ve got a little one who’s crawling in the family, you can sign up for the races at the main stage 15 minutes prior to them.
This is also your chance to brag about who has the cutest baby via the Photo Contest! Fabulous prizes can be won! It’s for a great cause too, as all proceeds go to support the Y Young Moms Program.
Miss out on the photo contest or race prizes? There are door prizes to be won too! Fill out a show ballot and you could win the Grand Prize, which consists of gifts from some of the fair’s exhibitors. Lots of the exhibitors themselves will have some great prizes to draw for too!
Are you worried the kids will get bored while mom and dad are shopping? The Kids Corner can help fix that! This is a fun and educational area where your older kids can burn off some of that pent-up energy. There is also a cafe and “Baby Bistro” for babies, kids, and adults to grab a bite to eat at when you get hungry.
Many, many more details about this Victoria fall event can be found at the official website! We’ll see you in September!
