Come One, Come All to the 6th Annual All Ages and Abilities Carnival hosted by My Places Community Events. With over 800 people attending last year, we’ve decided to expand and have both the main and south expo to enjoy!
What is this for?
1.) To have FUN! – All ages and abilities are welcome to attend. There will be games, prizes, bounce houses, pictures, food trucks, places to socialize, stage performances, racecars, vendors, exhibitors, and information booths for local support agencies.
2.) To recruit Caregivers – There are not enough caregivers, this is a crisis, and we need help. But what does being a caregiver look like? Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) are the foundation of all support given to people with disabilities in our community by providing one-on-one personal care services that clinical professionals do not have time for. DSPs support people to live full and meaningful lives. Again, what does this look like? Come to the Carnival and see. See how these amazing people interact and support their clients and friends. Interact with community members who need support and decide if you have time or interest in becoming a DSP. There will be agencies hiring and a booth of community support worker positions. Full-time, Part-time, Days, Nights, Evenings, Weekends, all shifts are available. Need training, no problem, we can help with that too. Being a Caregiver is not for everyone. That’s okay. If you only attend to have FUN, you are still supporting our community!
3.) To Connect our Community – It is hard to ask for help. It is even harder to find help when you don’t know who to ask. Many times, people do not know there is help for them. If you feel alone or unable to get the support you need, come to our Carnival. Our community is full of amazing and knowledgeable people who care. This event is an opportunity to network with and meet others who believe that Everyone Deserves Support. We need to support those who give support.
FREE Admission: includes a Booth Bingo Card, map, and schedule to performances by the Idaho Renaissance Festival, Whiskey Tango Blues Jazz Band, Akashic Moves, and more to be announced.
Carnival Tickets: 1 for $3, 2 for $5, 5 for $10, 30 for $30
This is the fundraising part of the Carnival. All proceeds will benefit My Places Community Events 501c3 to continue providing educational and recreational events for people with disabilities throughout our community. Visit Myplacesce.org for more information.
