This annual family event is like a comic book convention for PBS Kids, with everything from PBS KIDS-themed costumes and activities to live music, children’s books, and art. Proceeds benefit educational public media programming in western New England.
Kids can meet, hug, and take photos with PBS KIDS characters like Curious George and Clifford the Big Red Dog. They can play and learn with PBS Kids-themed activity stations hosted by education-focused community partners.
Entertainers such as Mister G present live shows, and families often get the chance to watch a preview of the latest new program from PBS Kids.
The New England Public Media Kids Fan Day is normally held at the Basketball Hall of Fame during the month of November. The event will return when large gatherings are safe and feasible.
