When I Grow Up Festival hosted by Partners in Parenting

“When I grow up I want to be an artist” has been our oldest daughter’s answer for the past 3 years. Her younger sister wants to be a “singing ballerina” and a teacher, at the moment. What do your kids want to be when they grow up?

Help them get an idea by visiting the Partners in Parenting When I Grow Up Festival on Sunday, January 14, 2018, where local professionals will interact with children to share the tools of their trade. 


On the Mainstage, kids can learn about artistic and entertainment fields through children’s musicians, story times, dance, yoga, and other exciting performances throughout the day. Popular children’s entertainer, Staci Gracy and the well-known Much2Much will perform onstage from 11:00am to 1:00pm.

Professionals who will be at the Expo: 


  • Dentist
  • Ballet Dancers
  • Austin Police Department
  • Austin Park Rangers
  • Visual Artist
  • UT School of Engineering
  • Soccer Players
  • Physician
  • Children's Author
