Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know whether or not this event is right for me?

Toddlers & Tykes is for parents who have kids between 2 and 6 years old. We also see a lot of grandparents, caregivers, and friends.

When and where will the event be held?

Saturday, November 2nd from 10AM to 2PM at the DoubleTree Rochester. Doors open at 10AM, but we strongly encourage you to check in early so you can hit the ground running. Check-in opens at 9:45AM. Parking is free and plentiful.

Should I plan on staying the whole time?

You’re encouraged to spend the whole day, but we’ve planned the event so you can cut it short and still take in a lot of valuable content. You can select whichever demonstrations and activities are most appealing to you. Keep your lanyard on, and you can also re-enter if you need to step out for a bit. *Must be present to win grand prizes (drawing at 2PM)!

Is re-entry permitted?

Yes — just keep your lanyard and wristband on!

Are there food and beverage options?

Iced water is available in our event space. Their on-site restaurant, Bistro 252, serves breakfast until 10:30AM and the Atrium Lounge serves lunch starting at 11AM, in case you’re looking for a heartier meal. A snack shop is also available in the lobby. We will be offering complimentary snacks for kids, too.

How do the educational sessions work?

We’ll provide a detailed schedule of seminars, workshops, and demonstrations in advance of the event so you can plan your day. Announcements will be made on our website as well as on our Facebook event page. Seating is ample, but available on a first-come, first-served basis. So, if there’s anything that you are committed to seeing, we recommend arriving a few minutes early to get a seat.

How do I purchase tickets for the raffle?

We have tickets available for purchase via cash or credit card at the event. We’ll draw for the prizes and call winning numbers at the close of the event (2PM). We’ll also text anyone who isn’t present when numbers are called; all prizes must be claimed and taken by 3PM. We usually have about 40 donated items/packages in the raffle, and 100% of ticket sales will be donated to a to-be-determined local organization that serves parents and children.

Can I bring my kids?

This is a conference-style event for parents, but we understand that kids may come along! You know your children best — it’s up to you whether you think this will be right for them. Please note that there is no child care available, but there is a play area, with materials provided. Also, please note that strollers aren’t able to be brought into the event space, but there is a complimentary stroller check available. There is also a private room for mothers to nurse or pump (or just take a breather). While the nursing lounge provides a comfy place for moms and their littles, please note that our entire venue is breastfeeding friendly!

How do I get tickets?

Tickets can be purchased via Eventbrite on our website.
