The 7th annual Baby Kid Expo will take place Saturday, April 13th, at the St. Charles Convention Center, from 9:00a.m. – 4:00p.m.  Free Admission.


The Baby Kid Expo is the largest yearly event held in the metro St. Louis area that's specially designed to provide parents with a fun trade show atmosphere, while their kids enjoy an awesome day of fun and entertainment! The Baby Kid Expo is a place for parents to learn about things available in the community that they might not be familiar with otherwise.


“The Baby Kid Expo is a fun event for the whole family where you can gain knowledge from local businesses that will benefit your family.  There are exhibitors ranging from healthcare, daycares, photographers, dance groups, college planners, sports groups, camp information, boutiques, and more!” says Heather Deatz,  Show Producer.  “The event is free but be sure to be ready to shop!” 


The Baby Kid Expo has various entertainment acts and speakers that will be featured throughout the day.  Presenting Sponsors Barnes Jewish St. Peters and Children’s at Progress West will have their ‘Mom Docs’ on hand to chat with new parents on the main stage at 10:30 and 1:30. They are also sponsoring the Cutest Baby Contest.  Be sure to check out our Facebook page for information on how to participate and win great prizes! 


The Main Stage will also be loaded with fun starting with a visit from Dora and Diego at 9:30am.  The Sprout and About Diaper Derby is back!  Be sure to pre-register your crawler on our website to participate in the fun!  Wal-Mart and My Red Thread will both have fashion shows featuring their spring line. The Muny Kids, magic from Abra Kid Abra, dancers and singers will all grace the main stage. Come see rare birds from the World Bird Sanctuary.  We’ll also have face painting, a rock climbing wall, a petting zoo, video games, mascots and inflatables!  The local kid band Doppler FX will also be performing!


Kohl’s Safety Street will be back with their interactive exhibit that teaches children important lessons.  This exhibit talks about street, stranger and dog safety.  It’s a great way to teach these important lessons in a fun way that will leave a lasting impression.


Missouri Children’s Identification and Program Protection (MoCHIP) will be at this year’s event providing FREE Child ID Badges and a personal information CD. 


Bring Dad along to purchase a great Mother’s Day gift from our jewelry, home decor, kitchen gadgets, beauty products, or home remodeling exhibitors. She deserves it!
