Meet Dozens of Programs from Pre-K to Adult Education!


You’re invited to an afternoon of free family fun and learning on Saturday, November 9, 2019.

Bring your teens and tots to visit booths hosted by innovative schools and other educational programs serving learners of all ages. Grab a bite to eat while you're there—the Festival of Learning takes place at the historic Browning Hangar, right across from the popular Mueller Trailer Eats food park.
