Central Florida Wholesome Entertainment
The Florida Kids and Family Expo was created in 2014 by Central Florida moms that have lived and worked in our community for decades. A teacher, business owner, and employee, our team was always so busy working, they didn’t know what opportunities were available in their own community. So, they created MyCentralFloridaFamily.com and the Florida Kids and Family Expo to help other families discover what’s possible each year!
The Florida Kids and Family Expo brings approximately 150 pre-natal, baby, toddler, kid, teen and family exhibitors together with products, services and opportunities to enrich your family. From free trials to coupons, discounts and giveaways, not only will you discover new ideas, but you’ll also be able to try them out for free or save money along the way! The exhibits are free to interact with, from animal encounters to product trials to character meet and greets and so much more.
The Florida Kids and Family Expo is your annual opportunity to discover what Central Florida has to offer moms-to-be, babies, toddlers, kids, teens and families. Beat the heat and get indoors for some epic family fun while discovering new ideas and opportunities for your family.
