2018 Registration Information

We look forward to having you join over 125 community organizatons at the 34th Annual Strong Kids / Safe Kids event to be held from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturday, August 18, 2018 at the Chemung County Fairgrounds. Strong Kids exhibitors represent a broad segment of the community and we encourage you to think about being part of this exciting event. Strong Kids offers your organization a unique opportunity to promote your mission and educate and inform thousands of children and parents in a fun-filled and exciting environment. Over 12,000 people attend the SKSK festival annually - a not-to-be missed opportunity for kid serving agencies and businesses to reach families who need your help and information.

All exhibitors are asked to provide a simple hands-on activity for children as part of their display. The purpose of the event remains the awareness of children's health and safety issues and the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Past experience has shown providing a fun interactive activity at your booth for pre and elementary school age children will increase traffic at your display. You are strongly encouraged to provide educational materials, but the effectiveness of your message will be enhanced if your booth is an attractive and exciting destination for kids. See exhibitor tips for more information about planning your booth.

As the event will be held rain or shine and covered space is limited, we strongly recommend you consider bringing a pop-up tent or canopy to protect your display from sun or showers. Access to power is limited, and we recommend you choose an activity that does not require electricity. Please remember there is no charge to the public for activities or sales of promotional items at Strong Kids/Safe Kids.

To become part of Strong Kids we recommend you use our handy online registration form. If you would like to participate, but don't have the workers or volunteers to staff your own booth; please consider sponsoring an entertainment performance or an activity that requires financial support. Please contact Albert Comfort, to discuss your organization's interest in this exciting event and join our mailing list to receive the latest news from Strong Kids.
