6th Annual Free Camp and School Fairs Return
The Free Camp & School Fairs return to Contra Costa for the sixth year on the weekend of February 24-25, with free activities and over 75 exhibitors. Attendees can view a smorgasbord of camps, enrichment programs, schools, S.T.E.M. and S.T.E.A.M. programs, performing arts, preschools, cooking, educational, sports and other programs this spring and summer.
The free fairs run from 11am – 2pm each day. On Saturday, February 24, the Tri-Valley Camp and School Fair is in San Ramon at Pine Valley Middle School Auditorium again, and then on Sunday, February 25, the Contra Costa Camp and School Fair is held for the sixth year in Lafayette at Acalanes High School, with ample free parking at both locations. Free coding workshops allow novices to code HTML and launch their own website in just 15 minutes.
The fairs are presented by Bay Area Festivals, Inc., which also produces Bay Area KidFest (29th annual festival is May 26-28, Memorial Day Weekend, in Concord); Bay Area Kids’ Book Fairs (3rd annual in April); Super Holiday Boutiques (each December around Contra Costa); and Super Valentine’s Boutique (each January at Hilton Concord). Bay Area KidFest has been voted Best Community Event five consecutive times by readers of Claycord.com. Bay Area Festivals has donated about $80,000 cash to educational, health, sports, and youth non-profits since 2010.
The first 200 families each day receive a free goody bag. There is a free raffle drawing for camps and KidFest tickets. Anyone bringing a can of food for the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano will receive one extra raffle ticket for each can. Admission is free, and there is ample free parking.
