We recommend that parents make this an adults-only event, but we understand that finding childcare can be difficult. Please note, there will be NO dedicated activities for children at the school fair. If children do attend, they must stay with their parents at all times. Workshops are for adults only. No strollers in the workshops or exhibitor hall due to space limitations.

Your RSVP/ticket payment is a non-refundable reservation and processing fee. Pictures will be taken at the event to be used by NPN in future NPN publications, web pages and other promotional material for the sole purpose of illustrating the activities at the event. Disclaimer: NPN and event sponsor assume no liability for any and all bodily injury at the event. An NPN memberships entitles two adults free entry to this event.
