Diaper Derby and Awesome Info at Annual Baby Fair


Renown Children’s Hospital is a sponsor of this fun annual Baby Fair and Diaper Derby that’s especially tailored to families.

It may not be the Indy 500, but the annual Diaper Derby is just as unpredictable. Kids from 6-24 months race across mats for the chance to win some fun prizes as well as a down payment on college — for years later, obviously, when their victory in the Diaper Derby is just a distant, fun memory for their parents (who will likely have copious amounts of video of it).

The Diaper Derby is just one aspect of the Baby Fair. In its fifth year, the event is taking place Saturday, Nov. 10 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Silver State Pavilion inside the Grand Sierra Resort and Spa. Renown Children’s Hospital is a sponsor of the event.

Win Big and Learn Lots at the Diaper Derby

The derby’s big prize is a chance at a $529 contribution into a SSGA Upromise 529 Plan college savings account, courtesy of the College Savings Board of Nevada. It’s a great way to get a head start on baby’s future.
