Welcome to the Washington Family Entertainment Showcase

Sunday, October 4, 2015
at the Lacey Community Center

Thanks for browsing by!  If you’re a teacher, parent, librarian, recreation coordinator, or plan an event for families, the Washington Family Entertainment Showcase is a fantastic resource.  Since the debut in 2009, many of the Pacific Northwest’s favorite kidshow entertainers and presenters have been featured at the Showcase.

This year’s event is Sunday, October 4, 2015 at the Lacey Community Center.  Doors open at noon to visit with vendors.  The performance Showcase begins at 1:00 pm and includes Chris Fascione (storyteller), Vikki Gasko-Green (ventriloquist), Rick Anderson (magician), Eric Haines (one-man band), Ian Dobson (steel drum artist), Tears of Joy Theatre, Eva Abrams (storyteller), and Henrik Bothe (physical comedy).  Each artist has an eight minute window to present, and after the performances there is time to visit with presenters.  The event wraps up at 4:00 pm.

Visit our Performer Directory by clicking links at the menu along the left of the screen for details for our partners and artists.  Attend the Showcase and you’ll have opportunities to meet with these presenters face-to-face and learn more about how they work.

You probably receive dozens of letters and brochures from fundraising companies and assembly presenters.  You probably either file it or toss it with barely a glance.  How do you know which ones are really excellent and will make a difference for your school, library, recreation program, or community event?

The Family Entertainment Showcase gives you the opportunity to talk with and meet the presenters in person.  They are happy to tell and show you what they do, and how they can help your organization.  If you have questions, this is the place to get them answered.

Block-Book and Save More

Many assembly presenters offer block-booking discounts for schools that coordinate dates for their programs.  It simply makes sense to do more than one program in a day, particularly when working out of town.  Ask presenters for more details.

Best of all, since you’re surrounded by other school representatives, the Showcase is the ideal time to make connections with other groups that may be interested in teaming up with you to save money.
