The LEEWARD DISCOVERY FAIR is a perfect way to spend the day for all family members. The name reflects the expanded emphasis on the educational, interactive exhibits and games. The family-oriented day includes food booths, a book fair and plant sales. Admission is free, with ample free parking.

The highlights of the Fair are the bustling hands-on, interactive learning activities for the entire family. This year, you’ll be able to decode Egyptian hieroglyphics, create handmade paper and launch a rocket. Returning crowd favorites include,  Bubblicious Geometry, and Quicksand Goo, a mysterious glob that is both a liquid and a solid!
