The Vancouver Island Baby Fair is happening again in Victoria on Saturday September 25 and Sunday September 26. And did you know that each year they host a photo contest? Oh you didn’t? Well now you do, and I think you should go! Details directly from the Vancouver Island Baby Fair website are below! Visit the Baby Fair website for more information regarding hours, vendors and location.
“The on-site Photo Contest is an incredibly popular attraction at the Vancouver Island Baby Fair. Attendees tend to arrive early and make a bee-line to get their little one signed up to have their photo taken. Contestants make a $10 donation to enter your little one into the Vancouver Island Baby Fair Photo Contest.
They have their photo snapped in our professional on-site photo studio and receive a free 5×7 print after the Fair. Judges determine one winner in each category: 0-24 months old and 2-6 years old. Each of those winning families win fantastic prize package – plus the winner of the 0-24 month-old category will appear on the cover of Island Parent Magazine!
100% of the money raised from the Photo Contest, Stroller Parking, and Face Painting of our events always go to charity. We have raised thousands of dollars and provided exposure to several charities over the past three years.
At our upcoming Victoria event, we are proud to sponsor Greater Victoria Down Syndrome Society. The GVDSS includes individuals who have Down syndrome, as well as families, friends, advocates, peers, educators, and medical professionals. Together they provide information and understanding about Down syndrome, act as resources and supports for one another, and create a better understanding of diversity.
We are proud to be working with Jennifer Jonker Photography as our on-site photographer this year. (Little Pickle insert- Jennifer’s work is great, check out her site!!!).
