2015 Hannaford Kidz Expo

When: Event has passed. Watch this page for updates.
Where: Empire State Plaza, Albany, New York
Cost: FREE ADMISSION

The 2015 Hannaford Kidz Expo will fill the Convention Center with thousands of children and their families for a jam-packed day of entertainment, information, activities and fun!


From toddler to teen, and everyone in between, there will be something for all at the 10th annual, wildly popular event.

Some highlights of this year's event include:

  • 100,000 square feet of event space with 7 Meeting Rooms full of activities
  • Shows and meet & greets by the Marvel Characters (Spider Man, Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man) in the Swyer Theatre
  • Clowns, activities, and programming by the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Legends in Meeting Room 6
  • Hannaford 10th Anniversary Healthy Kidz Room with commemorative giveaways and prizes
  • Reptile Room with exotic reptiles from around the world
  • Bounce Around's giant bounce obstacle course

Plus, there's stuff for parents too! Parents will get important info on summer camps, health care, sports clubs, photographers, dance studios, amusement parks and much more fun to keep the kids healthy and happy.

Whether you're one of the 70,000 people that have attended the Kidz Expo before or are planning your family's very first trip, bring your kids to an event they are sure to enjoy!

Tips for enjoying the Expo:

  • Bring a BIG bag - With cold temperatures outside and a warm buzzing environment inside, you'll want to dress in layers. You'll need somewhere to store your coats and shedded layers PLUS all the brochures, toys, novelty items, and prizes you will accumulate at the Expo.
  • Plan ahead for organization - We suggest labeling some paper lunch bags or even large freezer bags to help you keep all your goodies organized. Filing can ensure the information you take home is most useful to you later!
  • Fully charge your phone - From characters to karaoke, face painting, and more, there will be so many photos you'll want to take as your kids enjoy the fun. Don't risk missing a shot because you're trying to conserve your battery!
  • Wear comfortable shoes - The convention center itself is a big place, and you'll likely be walking quite a ways just to get to it from your car, so comfortable shoes are a must.
  • Explore everything - Don't limit yourself just to the main hall when there is so much to experience throughout the convention center plaza.
  • Bring cash - It's FREE to get in and experience the Kidz Expo, including the scheduled shows and live entertainment, but it's good to have cash on hand for unexpected things like face painting, toys, snacks, and more.
