The city of Fremont Michigan (population 4,050) is transformed for one week in July into the Family Fun Capital of the United States! What would a Baby Food Festival be without those baby-oriented activities? Even for those without infants, the Baby Crawl is a very entertaining event! "I'm not sure what's more fun, the crawling babies or the parents that will do anything to get them across the finish line!" remarked an enthusiastic spectator. 

 The Festival kicks off on Wednesday with a “4-H Children’s Petting Zoo” at 10:00 am, followed by the “Kid’s Expo” held from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm. This free event will feature police cars, fire trucks, ambulances, and more that the children will be encouraged to explore. There will also be upwards of 20 booths with free popcorn, snow cones, and a vast array of activities for all the participants. And children that visit each and every booth will qualify for some fantastic door prizes. The “Kid’s Zone” is open every afternoon; Wednesday through Friday, for children ages 3 to 10 to participate in an arts and crafts activity. Groups within our community will use their unique talents to support the Kid’s Zone in the Fremont Marketplace   

Do you remember the days of feeding the baby, when it seemed more food wound up on the baby’s face, chair, and the floor, than in the baby’s mouth? The NBFF reminds us of those days with an Adult and a Kid’s “Baby Food Eating Contest”. Participants work in pairs trying to feed a jar of baby food to their partner in the least amount of time. The person doing the feeding is blindfolded, which leaves the person being fed to do all of the work.

Other activities include a wide variety of contests, musicians, clowns, and more! Children’s activities include frog jumping and turtle racing contests, bubble gum blowing and hula-hoop contests, obstacle course, bike race, fun run, water balloon toss, penny scramble, scavenger hunt, and much more. We have also added a junior division to many of our favorite children’s contests and events this year for the older children as well. Babies are treated to the Famous “Baby Crawl”, “First Baby Born Contest”, “Rock and Rest”, and the “Baby Photo Contest”.

And for the grown-ups, let’s not forget the entertaining “Adult Baby Food Eating Contest”, 5 and 10K run, and more! Area businesses can also compete in the Corporate Olympics. In this event, adult teams from area businesses compete in offbeat activities like the Tricycle Race with adults racing on kid-sized trikes, baby food eating, and other contests. This event is one of the most popular, as area employees cheer on their co-workers by wearing their team logos and colors.

Everyone loves a parade, and we have two! A Children’s Parade featured on Wednesday at 5:30 pm and our signature Grand Parade, with over 100 entries, on Saturday at 10:30 am. Check our website for more information. On our Main Stage, at the Veterans Memorial Park Amphitheater, we headliner entertainment. We also provide entertainment on our Community Stage, which is located on Main Street in in downtown Fremont. Don’t forget to visit the Arts and Crafts Show all day on Saturday July 14th, the Saturday before the festival in Veterans Memorial Park. With over 60 vendors, there is sure to be something for everyone. Our carnival runs Wednesday through Saturday, with many Pay-One-Price opportunities. “We draw close to 50,000 people to Fremont each year,” remarked Karen Baird, Executive Director of The Fremont Area Chamber of Commerce. “We have a reputation for providing good clean family fun, so come and join us for the Festival in 2018!”
