The Friends Center for Children (FCFC) and Elm City Montessori School will host the Sixth Annual Fair Haven Family Stroll & Festival on Saturday, April 30, 2016 at the Quinnipiac River Park in Fair Haven. This annual family event aims to educate the New Haven community on the benefits of high-quality early childhood education and create a space for family fun. Families and members of the extended New Haven community are invited to participate in a stroll around the river beginning at 10:30 AM, followed by a festival in the park from 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM. In the case of inclement weather, the rain date will be May 14.

“The Fair Haven Family Stroll & Festival is a fantastic opportunity to engage our community in the overarching conversation about quality early childhood education in this country,” said Allyx Schiavone, Executive Director of the Friends Center for Children. “We know that high-quality early education programs have a high return on the investment, making it that much more important to educate our community to inspire a change nationwide.”

The day’s events include live entertainment, door prizes, an information fair and family-friendly activities including parachute play, face-painting, arts and crafts, games and food vendors.  Click here for more information about the Fair Haven Family Stroll & Festival and here for a schedule of events.
