How Baby & Child Fest Was Born…

My husband and I thought for years about the need for a Baby, Child and Family Expo in the New Orleans area and when we moved back to Metairie from Orlando, Florida in 2009, we decided it was time to make it happen. Scott grew up in Metairie and I grew up in Labadieville, outside Thibodaux.

We knew the concept would work, but in 2010 all we had was an idea. Lucky for us, 77 exhibitors and nine sponsors (including our Presenting Sponsor, Ochsner Medical Center – Kenner) believed in it enough to take a chance on us.

The result was a hugely successful first Baby & Child Fest. 200 people were lined up outside the Pontchartrain Center before we opened the doors. Approximately 3,000 people came through the doors during the six hour event. Years two, three and four were even bigger.

Now we’re gearing up for the best-ever Baby & Child Fest. Our fifth annual event is October 4th, 2014!

Thanks for your support!
