2018 Virtual Baby & Child Fest

Baby & Child Fest Virtual Expo

Happy New Year! In case you missed our previous announcements, 2017 was a year of change for us. After nine successful expos since 2010 – seven in New Orleans and two on the Northshore – we decided to make changes to Baby & Child Fest and reinvented it as a Virtual Expo.

Our expos at the Pontchartrain Center & Castine Center were a massive undertaking each year with tremendous overhead and event planning commitment. During 2017, we decided to suspend the actual expos

and were in talks with a few interested businesses and people to continue the expos as they were. When discussions did not turn into a purchase, we decided to launch Baby & Child Fest Virtual Expo in order to continue to spotlight local businesses online through our website and social media that we had built over the years. We felt like reinventing the way we promoted businesses was the best way for us to continue to promote these amazing businesses our area has to offer to the parenting community including attendees we’ve met through the years of the expo.

Thank you for your tremendous support over the past nine years. Please let us know it you are interested in sponsoring a week of our Virtual Expo or are interested in purchasing the event to continue it in New Orleans and/or the Northshore.

For Families:

We will showcase a new business each week on our facebook page and through an email newsletter to keep you up to date on new and established businesses that cater to families. We’ll offer exclusive specials too.

For Businesses:
The NEW VIRTUAL EXPO will offer a more exclusive spotlight on businesses as it will be limited to 52 businesses for the year. Each business will receive a ONE WEEK SPOTLIGHT with social media posts and a dedicated e-mail blast during the week. Additional sponsorship opportunities will also be available.

Feel free to email us with any questions or to reserve your Spotlight Week today. {babyandchildfest@gmail.com}

Thank you for your tremendous support over the years. We brought a new event to the area and you embraced it in a big way. For that, we are forever grateful.
