Welcome to the Washington Family Entertainment Showcase

Family Entertainment Showcase features the Northwest’s favorite school & library performers

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 kids entertainers and school assembly presenters have been featured at the Showcase.

The October 2016 Showcase held at the Lacey Community Center. included live performances by Ian Dobson (steel drum musician), Vikki Gasko-Green (ventriloquist), Dan Chan (magician), Trent Arterberry (physical comedy), Rick Hartman (“Mr. Toymaker”), Judy Coder & Jennifer Epps (Western/Folk musicians), Rick Anderson (motivational-magic), Alex Zerbe (the Professional Zaniac).  Other performers with booths in the exhibit area included Sarah Liane Foster (movement theater), Merry Makers (bounces houses & games), Gideon For-mukwai (Story Warrior), Justin James (hypnotist) and Jeff Evans (magician).

The next Family Entertainment Showcase will be held in the fall of 2017 with date and venue TBA.  Admission is always FREE; to be the first to know once details are confirmed, e-mail us or be a fan on Facebook.

In the meantime, we will have a booth at the Washington State PTA convention held April 28 and 29 at the SeaTac Hilton.  For more details visit http://www.wastatepta.org/.   Stop by and say hi!

Possibly the Best Way to find
Great Family-Friendly Performers
for your School, Library, Parks and
Recreation, or Special Event

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.
