Held at the spacious Orange County Convention Center, the expo takes place Saturday, November 13 – Sunday, November 14 and connects families in Central Florida with entertainment for all ages. With over 150 pre-natal, baby, toddler, kid, teen and family exhibitors, the Central Florida Kids & Family Expo promises a weekend of air-conditioned, multi-generational fun. Here’s just a taste of what to expect.

Hands-on Fun

Even though there are so many different exhibitors, they all have one thing in common – hands-on fun!

In addition to mechanical bulls, bumper cars, bounces houses, sports zones, and arts and crafts sections, guests are welcome to participate in Touch-a-Truck, check out a petting zoo and butterfly exhibit, play a game of dodgeball, and much more. Some vendors offer extra fun such as carnival rides, face painting, and pony rides for an additional charge, so keep some cash in your pocket in case you want to try these.

Unique Photo Opportunities

Star Wars and Ever After characters will be on hand to hang out in Central Florida for the expo.

Your kids will love meeting their favorite characters and posing for selfies with them. They’ll also get the chance to meet and interact with a variety of farm animals and reptiles.

At the Central Florida Kids & Family Expo, you’ll be treated to family-friendly performances, which are included in the price of your ticket.
