We’ve extended the exhibitor registration deadline to April 15th! We want families and professionals to have access to as many of you and your wonderful resources and services as possible. So please consider taking advantage of this extension and registering to exhibit!


Dear Program Manager or Outreach Coordinator,


Just a reminder that we’d like to invite you to participate as an exhibitor in the NEW AND IMPROVED fifth annual Access to Adventure, which will be held on Saturday, May 4th from noon – 3:00 p.m. at the Music Concourse Bandshell in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.


Cohosted by Support for Families and SF Recreation and Park, this free annual event is an opportunity for children and youth with disabilities and special health care needs, their families and their friends to experience recreation, sports and fun activities that broaden their vision of what opportunities exist in their community. 300+ people, including young people of all ages from toddlers to transition-age youth, attended last year.

Representatives from sports, fitness and health organizations will demonstrate how children with special needs can participate in a variety of activities, including boating, soccer, dance, camps and more. The afternoon will be filled with fun activities, games, music and a free lunch.


We ask you to bring materials from your program to share with the families AND provide a fun activity, game or craft for the children to do. It should be a fun way to demonstrate how children and youth can access your program!


The exhibitor fee is $25 for non-profit organizations and $100 for for-profit organizations. Your payment allows you use of: a 6-foot table, two chairs, decorations and signage for your table. We will have volunteers to help you set up and host your activity, and we will provide lunch for two of your representatives.


To reserve table space, complete the attached registration form, with a check made out to Support for Families by April 15th. You are encouraged to email or fax the form to hold your spot and to mail a copy with your check attached.
Once payment is received, further information will be emailed to you (please provide us with your email address on the form).


Feel free to email or call with any questions.  If you know of other organizations that may be interested in this opportunity, please email the contact name, organization, snail mail and email address. We listened to last year’s exhibitor feedback, and we are making positive changes for the exhibitors to connect with families more effectively at the event!


I hope you and your organization will be a part of Access to Adventure.  See you in the park this spring!
