Saturday & Sunday • September 26 & 27, 2020

The Kids & Trucks planning team at Children’s Institute hopes that you and your family are staying safe during these unsettling times. We are following guidance from the government regarding any upcoming events and know that several summer festivals in Rochester have already been canceled.

We all understand that the current situation is fluid and that things can change rapidly, so for the moment we hope to give your family something to look forward to with our Kids & Trucks event scheduled for September 26-27, 2020. This event will remain on the calendar for now but will be cancelled if and when it becomes clear that we will not be able to proceed as planned so please check back here for updates.

We are also keeping all the first responders and healthcare workers in our thoughts as some have been sending vehicles and volunteering at Kids & Trucks from the beginning and love interacting with all the families!

Please contact charper [at] (Cindy Harper) with any questions.

A big THANK YOU to our 2019 sponsors


$1,000 - CRUISING





Children’s Institute would like to recognize the late Nancy Koris who started Kids & Trucks years ago for the local chapter of the Liver Foundation. Nancy’s vision brought this great family event to the Rochester community and she graciously passed it on to Children’s Institute to continue the tradition.
