Festival of Families

FIMC-VI Presents:
Florida Festival of Families


Florida Festival of Families is a free all-day event for parents, family members and caregivers of children with visual impairments. Parents will attend sessions led by mentors who are visually impaired, other parents, and professionals in the field. While parents are networking and learning, children in grades K-12 can participate in activities to facilitate social skills, independent living and concept development.  Younger children or children with individualized needs should remain with parents during workshop sessions.

An evening reception will be held Friday, September 13 from 6:00-8:00pm at the museum terrace, overlooking the river and downtown Tampa.  For families who are local or staying at the hotel, join us at the reception to get the Festival started!
