The All Kids Fair is part education and activities expo and part health and wellness fair.  In over 80 exhibitor spaces, many available programs and services will be presented, including after school activities, nutrition, special needs, camps, financial services, dental health, birthday party ideas, day cares, and tutoring.

In four speaker rooms, some classes will be held just for adults and others geared towards children.  Topics for the adults include Travel with Kids, Reading Comprehension, and College Funding.  Classes for the children and their families to enjoy together include music, archery, sports, and martial arts. 

Many non-profits will be participating in this year's event.  Those who bring non-perishable food to benefit The INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network) will receive raffle tickets to win valuable prizes.  Penelope's Odyssey will offer simple cheek swabs for the lifesaving national bone marrow registry.  Other non-profits include the American Airpower Museum, CHI Au Pair USA, Mid-Island Y JCC, YMCA of Long Island, and Friendship Circle.

At the 2012 event, attendee, Joyce MenDell, described her experience.  "My kids as well as the grownups had a great time at the fair.  This was one of the best I have been to from the way it was organized to all the different vendors you had."  

A new addition to this year’s event is a babysitting room, which will be free with an admission ticket.  There will also be many free activities, including cookie decorating, face painting, balloon animals, health screenings, breastfeeding support, plus free food samples and mini-massages for adults.  A clown from the Big Apple Circus will entertain, and beauty queen Amy Marchany, crowned Ms. Royal America 2011-2012, will attend.
