In an effort to accommodate all participants, all agencies are being asked to drop off all equipment/table displays at Enoch Davis Rec Center prior to 6:30am, drive to Tropicana Field to park for free, and ride the provided Trolley (free of charge) back to Enoch Davis Rec Center. Parking is limited in and around the Rec Center and streets will be closed for event activities.

We will receive a table and 2 chairs. Agency representatives are responsible for providing their own breakfast and lunch, and must stay until the last family goes through (1:00pm). Tables must be cleared at the end of the day, leaving no agency materials.

Children in the company of legal guardians can receive FREE physicals, immunizations, vision screening, dental screening, meet with local agencies and receive a backpack with school supplies.

IMPORTANT: Care Fair strongly discourages agency representatives from bringing their own children. If an agency representative and their child(ren) would like to participate in Care Fair services, they ask that table coverage be coordinated through the agency so that the table is manned at all times. Additionally, arrangements should be made such that the agency representative's child(ren) will be picked up after receiving their backpack.
