Bumps, Books, 'n Babies Resource Fair Vendor Application Form


PPLD invites you to participate in our 1st Annual Bumps, Books, ‘n Babies Resource Fair on Sat., Sept. 28 from 1:30 - 4:30 p.m. at Library 21c.


The goal of this resource fair is to connect parents of babies and those who are expecting or trying to conceive with local resources and services that make the parenting journey easier and give babies a bright beginning. We want to feature a variety of local exhibitors representing pregnancy- and baby-focused businesses and community groups from a variety of sectors, including wellness, safety, early literacy, parenting groups, play dates, and other resources for a variety of parenting topics.


As an exhibitor, you will have the chance to connect with families from all over El Paso County and promote your business/resources/activities while demonstrating your commitment to caregivers and children.


If you are unable to exhibit at the event this year, we would welcome you to provide materials or giveaways to be included in the attendee swag bags. You will be able to indicate this in the application form.


The for-profit business fee to exhibit (no direct sales) at a 5’ table is a $25 donation to the PPLD Foundation. If your application has been accepted you will receive instructions on how to proceed with the donation.


We also have spots open for 30 minute informational/educational presentations and/or Q&A panels. We are looking for community resource professionals who are willing to host a presentation or be on a panel with other CRPs.

  • Maternal Wellness: childbirth & postpartum care, mental health, fitness

    • Nutrition (lactation, baby-led weaning)
    • Sleep
    • Diapering (including cloth & elimination communication)
