2022 Preschool Fair Is Live January 23! Businesses/Schools Wanted

By Melissa Shrader Editor/Publisher Fort Collins Macaroni Kid May 14, 2021

Fort Collins Macaroni Kid will host the annual Preschool & Kids’ Activities Fair on Saturday, January 22, 2022, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.  

Looking to connect with local families? Want an easy place to meet many families at one time? 

This is the place! 

We invite you to participate as a vendor in the event, located at the Factory Outlets in Loveland off 34 and I25.  It’s a wonderful space in a central location that is sure to attract families from all over NoCo! The Fair is free to the public and is a community service offered by Fort Collins Macaroni Kid to bring parents searching for a preschool together with representatives from a variety of local preschools.  We also promote this event as a parent resource fair for families with children of all ages, interested in finding information on camps, local indoor & outdoor education and adventure, music/sports/art lessons, health, any resource etc.


The Fair will be promoted in Loveland & Fort Collins Macaroni Kid E-Newsletter, Loveland & Fort Collins Macaroni Kid social media, other local community websites as well as posted in churches, bookstores and organizations that cater to parents and families.  Of course, Fort Collins Macaroni Kid will have listings of all Fair participants listed in the weekly e-newsletter. Ideally, all of our vendors will also list the event on their websites, Facebook, Twitter, newsletters and school calendars to attract an even wider audience. Right now is also the perfect time to buy advertising space on our website, which always gets an average of over 24,500+ views a month.  For information on advertising contact melissas@macaronikid.com.


Since COVID prices have risen at most venues. We are doing our best to keep cost as low as possible.  REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR ALL FROM OCTOBER 16TH TILL JANUARY 7TH 2022.

Registration runs through January 7TH, 2022. Spaces are secured when payment is received, on a first-come, first-served basis.  Each participant will need to bring their own table, chairs and other set up materials. Space is 8x8. Set-up time is from 9-10:00 a.m.  All participants are requested to have their tables set up by 10 a.m. and staff their tables for the entire three hours.  In past years, 300+ families have attended this event, so please keep this in mind when preparing any handouts.


Due to the event being a Preschool and Kids Activity fair, Preschools and activity related businesses will take priority over other businesses, HOWEVER all resources are important and will be accepted on a first come first served basis.


Can’t make the fair or want to reach those who don't stop by your table? You can have your brochures included in bags handed out to families at the door.
