The City of Long Beach will host its fourth annual “Celebration of the Young Child” event on Saturday, April 30, 2022, from 10AM – 2PM. at the Billie Jean King Main Library, located at 200 W. Broadway, and on the grounds of the new Lincoln Park in downtown. The Celebration is a free annual event to showcase vendors who provide services and resources for young children and their families and caregivers. All families are welcome to attend to learn about various available resources and engage in fun, family friendly entertainment.

The Celebration will include information booths from local and regional education centers, agencies and vendors who provide services to families and children up to age 6. Booths will be set up outside on the BJK Library terrace with educational handouts that promote healthy child development, resources for parents, and fun and educational hands-on activities like no-mess painting and hula hoop games. Other event activities include storytimes, songs and movement for toddlers and preschool-aged children, hosted by Library staff, and performances by local children’s performing groups that will take place in the adjacent Lincoln Park, among other entertainment offerings. Families are encouraged to come for the information but stay for the fun!

Free parking will be available in the Civic Center parking garage located at the corner of Broadway and Chestnut Avenue.

This year, the Celebration will be held jointly at the Billie Jean King Main Library and the newly opened Lincoln Park.

The Celebration of the Young Child event is a citywide event made possible by a collaboration between the Health Department’s Early Childhood Education Program, the Long Beach Public Library, and the Mayor’s Fund for Education.
