Brooklyn BabyFEST in Toddlertown

Sat April 27, 2013

Williamsburg is now home to so many families The New York Times dubbed it “Toddlertown,” and this Saturday Town Square and Motherburg NYC are embracing the baby boom with the all-day Brooklyn BabyFEST. Cloth diapers, home births, tips on sleep and getting into preschool are just some of the things new and expectant parents can glean from the 70 exhibitors and 20 panel discussions. Expect food and drink from The Brooklyn Hero Company, ice cream by LIC’s Malu, live music, free childcare on site, and Brooklyn Based Kids is sponsoring the first-ever Diaper Derby–a crawling contest for those who are mobile but not yet walking. Email us if you want to enter; there are only 5 slots, and the first baby to reach the finish line gets a $40 gift certificate to children’s bookstore, The Story Nook. Be sure to check out the exhibitors and lineup of panelists and demos, then purchase tickets in advance to save time and money at the door.
