Mark your calendar now for a family-friendly weekend festival, Hudson Valley KidVenture! The event will be held 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 27 and 28 at Dutchess Community College in Poughkeepsie. It will allow children of all ages and abilities the opportunity to explore and discover their community with kid-friendly exhibitors, hands-on activities, a Touch-A-Truck exhibit, demonstrations, educational shows, live performances, music, food trucks and much more.
Proceeds from KidVenture will benefit The Chamber Foundation, Inc., the nonprofit affiliate of the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce that promotes educational and training programs for area youth and professionals. Last year, nearly $40,000 in scholarships were awarded to area youth with the help of Hudson Valley KidVenture.
The mission of the Wappingers Central School District is to empower all of our students with the competencies and confidence to challenge themselves, to pursue their passions, and to realize their potential while growing as responsible members of their community.
