Babies & Bumps

Event Elements

Our signature events feature a curated collection of local businesses, brands, and non-profits dedicated to serving new and soon-to-be parents. We offer info-packed, expert-led seminars and demonstrations to arm you with resources you never knew you needed. And we’re thrilled to be featuring special guest, Jamie Grayson, at all of our events this year. Add perks like shopping, complimentary activities, and giveaways galore… and there’s nothing like Babies & Bumps!

Brands & Backyard Businesses

Exhibitors & Vendors

We curate the events to showcase organizations — from businesses and brands to healthcare providers and non-profits — that cater to new and soon-to-be parents (and have missions aligned with ours). On event day, guests can connect with brands, learn about local resources, shop, sign up for classes, enter giveaways, and more!

Gear & Safety Education

Jamie Grayson's Baby Registry Lab

Visit with baby gear expert and Child Passenger Safety Technician, Jamie Grayson on the exhibitor floor to ask questions and get hands-on demonstrations of a range of baby gear. Then, join Jamie for Baby Registry Lab – a 60-minute session where he’ll walk attendees through products and safety basics in top baby gear categories like car seats, strollers, carriers, and high chairs (and give away prizes!).

Educational Sessions

"How-To" Demonstrations

Hands-on learning is where it’s at! These interactive sessions are designed to teach you valuable skills you can take home and put into practice, like baby wearing, picking the perfect breast pump, and child car seat safety. These demos can help you build confidence to handle life with a baby from day one.

Educational Sessions

Seminars & Workshops

There’s a lot to learn! So, we partner with experts to provide classroom-style workshops and seminars on a wide range of topics related to pregnancy and parenting. Want real talk about writing a birth plan, the fourth trimester and postpartum recovery, and baby’s first foods? We’ve got you.

The Experience

Activities & Amenities

New and soon-to-be parents need some TLC to enjoy a busy event day. We get it! We offer creature comforts like a feeding lounge — for peace, quiet, nursing, and pumping — as well as a stroller check and a variety of other perks. Guests can also enjoy any number of activities! From babywearing test drives to photo booths to chair massages, every event is designed to make your experience fun and memorable.

Giveaways & Giving Back

Thanks to our incredible brand partners, our guests receive lavish gift bags and entry into grand prize drawings (giveaways vary by ticket type). It’s important to us to give back in meaningful ways, so attendees also have a chance to win dozens of prizes generously donated by our sponsors, local business, and brands in our charity raffle. We donate 100% of the proceeds from raffle ticket sales to a local, mission-driven organization that serves families or babies.
