Kids Fair at the Southeast Expo Center cover
Mission To provide parents and children, from infants to twelve years of age, with resources for a healthier and safer way of life.
Description "Kids Fair", previously known as "Baby Fair", began in 1996 due to a grant written by Debra Garrard. At the time, Debra Garrard, was the Family Consumer Science Extension Educator with Pittsburg County OSU Cooperative Extension Service. The event began due to Debra and Pittsburg County OHCE (previously known as Home Demonstration) members identifying the need to provide parents and children with resources for a healthier and safer way of life. The first few years of the Baby Fair ws held at the J. L. Stipe Center and the Main and Oklahoma Church of Christ. It has grown so much, it is now held at the Southeast Expo Center in McAlester. In 2016, the name of the event broadened even more to "Kids Fair" so that children from infants to twelve years of age could enjoy a day of learning. In 2016, over 65 agencies provided over 200 volunteers for the event, which provided educational demonstrations and materials to over 2000 people.
