Parent and Child Expo keeps growing up


The ever-popular Nelson Parent and Child Expo promises to be even bigger and better this year with the team from Nelson Venues & Events taking over the running of it.

Shelley Haring of Nelson Venues & Events says that this will be the ninth year of the expo and they are proud to continue on the great work that previous owner Prue Fothergill of Ecomoon Collective had put in place for the event.

The expo will take over the whole of Founders Park with a range of exhibitors catering from babies through to teens.

Shelley says there will be speakers and workshops, kids’ activities and entertainment plus more.

She says to keep an eye on its Facebook and Instagram pages for updates.

“We aim to equip parents and caregivers with the tools and products for effective parenting, empower through informative talks and workshops, and excite all ages with an interactive and family fun day out.”

The event takes place on September 8, 10am-4pm and more information can be found at http://www.nelsonparentandchildexpo.co.nz/
