Giveaway: Tickets to Big Baby Bash & Toddler Jam


Liza Wilson, the owner of Toybrary Austin, and Jessica Glorieux, the local mama behind Pregnant in Austin, are throwing a Big Baby Bash and Toddler Jam this spring, and it promises to be unlike any other kids’ event!

This two-day event is for all expectant, new and experienced parents with little ones up to age five. Each day of the event, April 11 and 12, 2015, will be filled with informative demos and talks, giveaways, food, drinks and fun. With over 100 of the best local and national companies in the baby/toddler industry, the Big Baby Bash will be a one-stop shop to check out, test out, and try out everything you could possibly need for your growing family.

Where and When:

The event will take place Saturday, April 11, and Sunday, April 12, at Toybrary Austin and Ben Hur Shrine Temple (7811 and 7817 Rockwood Ln.), from 10 AM – 2 PM both days.


Saturday, 4/11: Expectant parents can test-drive the best baby products on the market, shop, attend workshops, meet other parents and win amazing raffle prizes.

Sunday, 4/12: Parents with young children and families can play together, attend seminars, shop, learn about schools, and win amazing raffle prizes.

On both days: Parents are encouraged to relax, nibble on delicious goodies, and sip a mocktail or cocktail while learning and shopping!

Tickets are on sale now until one day before the event. Single-day general admission tickets are $15 each, and VIP tickets (which include all the perks of general admission plus extra raffle tickets and a HUGE goody bag) are $75. Each ticket purchase is good for up to two adults. There is also a Groupon deal (no affiliate link), while supplies last. 

The Big Baby Bash will partner with Austin Diaper Bank by donating a portion of ticket proceeds to provide diapers to little Austinites most in need.
