Baby food festival 2019

National Baby Food Festival - Fremont Area Chamber of Commerce, MI

Annually held the third full week of July. Family fun and a celebration of children are the key components in our one-of-a-kind National Baby Food Festival (NBFF).  The city of more than 4,000 is transformed for one week in July into the Family Fun Capital showcasing Fremont as a great place to LIVE, WORK, & PLAY! The Festival has been made possible through the generous support of sponsors such as Nestle Nutrition/Gerber Products Company, Gerber Life Insurance, and many more!  Well over 100 Newaygo County volunteer share their time and talents to ensure the National Baby Food Festival has a wide variety of well run activities for families to enjoy. 

What would a Baby Food Festival be without those baby-oriented activities?  Even for those without infants, the Baby Crawl is a very entertaining event. 

The Festival kicks off on Wednesday with a 4-H Children’s Petting Zoo and Kid’s Expo. The Kid’s Zone is open every day; Wednesday through Saturday, where children of all ages can participate in activities such as arts and crafts, games, and so much more!  The National Baby Food Festival is proud of the annual Special Kids Day event. This event is designed to provide festival access to kids with special needs who are 18 years of age or younger who may not otherwise be able to attend.

Do you remember the days of feeding the baby, when it seemed more food wound up on the baby’s face, chair, and the floor, than in the baby’s mouth?  The NBFF reminds us of those days with a Baby Food Eating Contest.  Participants work in pairs trying to feed a jar of baby food to their partner – while blindfolded! 

Other festival activities include a wide variety of contests, musicians, clowns, and more. Children’s activities include frog jumping, turtle racing, bean bag toss, water balloon toss, and much more. Our Carnival, TJ Schmidt Carnival, runs Wednesday through Saturday, with many Pay-One-Price opportunities.

Everyone loves a parade, and we have two - a Children’s Parade and our signature Grand Parade, with over 100 entries. The legendary Car Show will be held on Saturday of festival! Owners of antique cars, muscle cars, trucks, Rat Rods, motorcycles, and more showcase their rides right down Main Street.  Check in for the car show at the corner of Main Street and Stewart.. A team of judges will be selecting award winners for a variety of classes. Make sure to stop by the Kids play area, and enjoy food from area vendors. This event will be held on Saturday immediately following the parade and concluding at 4 pm.  The theme for the Grand Parade is "Celebrating Family".

On the festival’s Main Stage, at the Veterans Memorial Park amphitheater will feature free entertainment all week long Thursday night’s  hypnotist show and Movie in the Park, Friday - Current Country and Saturdays Music;  the Adams Family followed by Lookin Back: A Bob Seger tribute.

International competition-festival of children's and youth creativity "Step to a Dream"

From 06 to 18 June 2019, the International Competition-Festival of Children's and Youth Creativity "Step to a Dream" will be held in Croatia. The event is organized under the patronage of the Croatian State Folk Song and Dance Ensemble "LADO".

Croatia is an amazingly beautiful country located along the coast of the Adriatic Sea. The sea here is the most transparent, pebbly beaches are surrounded by shady pine trees, the sun is still “soft” in June, and the people of Dalmatia (the region of Croatia where we hold the festival) are cheerful and friendly. We chose the Medena 3* hotel on the seashore, near the medieval town of Trogir, as the base for the participants. For its rare beauty and dedication to tradition, this city has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. nine0003

Split Airport is only 15 minutes drive from the hotel. A little more than half an hour to the capital of the region - the city of Split. In addition to the magnificent palace of Emperor Diocletian, which you must visit, Split is famous for its serious dance schools - folk dance, modern styles and especially classical ballet. It is also the cultural capital of Dalmatia. Dalmatians unusually honor their traditions. You will see this in the national costume, hear it in the manner of speech and even feel it in the national cuisine. Croatia is unique. And we will try to reveal it for the participants of the festival in all its glory, much deeper and more interesting than tourists from all over the world see it. nine0003
