experimenting with it.

Imagine cooking workshops, circus acts, local farmers with their cattle and
also butchers present at the venue. There will also be celebrities present cooking with kids and their parents, so parents can learn better eating habits for the family, under one tent.

  • Pre-school (Tots) 2-4
  • Elementary (Kids) 5-10
  • Middle school (Tweens) 11-13
