2024 Celebration of the Young Child

April 27 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

The City of Long Beach’s Celebration of the Young Child will return to the Billie Jean King Main Library on Saturday, April 27, 2024. The event, a collaboration between the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services, the Long Beach Public Library, and the Mayor’s Fund for Long Beach, will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and include entertainment and activities in addition to a resource fair. Parents, families and caregivers who care for children 8 years old or younger are encouraged to attend.

In preparation for the 2024 event, the Health Department’s Early Childhood Strategic Initiatives Program is collecting feedback and ideas that will be used to gather insight into how the Celebration can best support child development for babies and children up to 8 years old. A community feedback survey is available online now through March 1, 2024.

Every year, more than 50 organizations provide resources, hands-on learning and entertainment to over 1,000 families at Celebration of the Young Child. Children are provided opportunities throughout the event to learn, explore and play through hands-on activities, sensory engagement and age-appropriate games. Their caregivers and family members enjoy live performances by musical artists, participate in opportunity drawings and are provided a wealth of information on keeping their children healthy and thriving.
