Mark your calendar for the 5th Annual Badlands Baby Fair & Expo Saturday, May 4, 2019. May the Fourth be with you as we celebrate The Year of the Father!

The Badlands Baby Fair & Expo is a FREE community event to advocate natural & peaceful parenting strategies, unifying community services available for pregnancy through preschool in Southwestern North Dakota.

We believe "happy, healthy families evolve from supportive communities".

This year, we welcome special guest speaker, Sean Brotherson, Ph.D., Professor and Extension Family Science Specialist and author of Father Times -a newsletter for fathers and father figures of young children!

It’s time to take a fresh look at being a dad! Dr. Brotherson will share his experiences in Generative Fathering -how fathers provide for the needs of their children and the next generation.

Bring the whole family as we celebrate dad with activities, classes, and vendors that engage and encourage Dad in parenting from pregnancy through preschool!

We offer free, fun, and educational, classes led by local professionals on topics ranging from pregnancy & birth, cloth diapering, breastfeeding, infant massage, early literacy, car seat safety, active parenting, and more!

Our activities, such as KIDS fit, Babywearing & Cloth Diapering demonstrations, and the popular, I Crawled the Line! Diaper Derby, encourage family participation. All day activities include MiniPhotography sessions, a family reading nook, concessions, and a Mother’s Lounge.

This year, The Badlands Baby Fair has partnered with the United Way and our local Southwest District Health Office to host a Community Baby Shower for expectant families in need to provide First 30 gift bags containing the basics to bring home baby.

The Badlands Baby Fair & Expo strives to unite and educate businesses & services to share with the public and professionals in a one day event. We hope to detect gaps in services and resources in our area and help fill them! Future goals include hosting a reception to recognize outstanding individuals and organizations in our community who embody the Badlands Baby Fair & Expo philosophy and adding a one day family health education conference for professionals in Dickinson.

Do not miss this opportunity to connect with 40+ local crafters, businesses, and service agencies in Southwestern North Dakota and meet 600+ local guests at this FREE community event organized by local parent volunteers.

Opportunities for sponsorship are available now. Exhibitor registration will be open soon. We are also accepting volunteers, prize donations, and ideas for activities and speakers. Visit for more information.

Thank you for supporting the Badlands Baby Fair & Expo for 5 amazing years. We look forward to supporting businesses, services, and families in Southwestern North Dakota with this FREE community event for many more!
