Bluegrass for Babies Concert
Are you a Bluegrass fan? Then don’t miss the Bluegrass for Babies concert at Sawyer Point each year in September. This year is the sixth year and I have to tell you that this event just keeps getting better and better!
The founder’s launched this program as a way to give back to Cincinnati Children’s, which had provided life-saving surgery to their then newborn son. Since then, this fundraiser for the hospital has raised over $100,000.
“What really sets us apart is that we implement our three pillars of preventative health – nutrition, toxin awareness, and waste management – throughout the Bluegrass for Babies concert. We offer real, non-processed food options like apples, guacamole, and sustainably raised local meats, and feature organic and locally sourced concessions and vendors, as well as family safe skincare products. We also strive to be a zero-waste event, offering water refill stations, creative recycling options, and by composting of all concessions, and service ware.” said Schneider.
This year marks the first that Bluegrass for Babies is being produced under the Healthy Roots Foundation name, a change that occurred in August of 2014. The need for Foundation became apparent as Bluegrass for Babies evolved from the concert into a year-round organization providing tools, programming and resources as well as to hosting a variety of special events.
Some of the activities include:
Farmer’s Market: Nutrition and food are key components of setting the foundation for healthy lives. The Farmer’s Market features real, non-processed food options like apples, local sustainably raised burgers, gluten-free grilled cheeses, locally made desserts, and more. And, none of the food or drink options contain any high fructose corn syrup.
Healthy Home: The Healthy Home Experience features activities provided by local experts on home building design and resources, waste management, baby care products, and more.
Family Wellness: Visit the Family Wellness Experience to learn about relaxation techniques, skincare, family financial plans, pediatric health tips, and more.
Let’s get Moving!: Children of all ages will enjoy a variety of movement activities on the lawn including soccer, basketball and more.
Art & Music: Children of all ages will enjoy exploring new instruments, creating new masterpieces, and more.
Toddler Play Experience: The Toddler Play Experience allows parents to enjoy some of the area’s best bluegrass music and a refreshing beverage in a worry free environment. We have created a contained location on the lawn with many of your toddler’s favorite play activities.
Oh and what would a party be without pizza? Children 12 and under will be able to eat free with the purchase of an adult meal from the Green B.E.A.N. Delivery concession stand until 6:00 pm. There is a one free kid meal per one purchased adult meal limit.
Mama Mimi’s, besides being a vendor at this year’s event, is also donating 100% of the money received from purchases at the event directly to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital!
Tickets are available for only $15.00 if purchased in advance and $20.00 if purchased the day of the event. Children are free. Order tickets online at the Healthy Roots Foundation. Plenty of parking will be available in the Sawyer Point parking lot. Bringing a group? Purchase group tickets at a discount through firstname.lastname@example.org.
