Everyone Loves NICE!

Chelsea S.

I’ve gone to the expo both years. First as an exhibitor than as an attendee. It’s such a gem of an event. There really is no other like it. It’s great for the whole family. I love the people and businesses this event attracts and my 2 year old had so much fun making art and playing musical instruments this year. We look forward to going again next year!

Mandy D.

Today was my first time at the expo & it was fantastic! So many wonderful people, such a great variety of products, services & professionals. It’s a must for me & I wouldn’t miss it next year. Highly recommend it to parents/grandparents/caretakers/parents to be.

Valeriya K.

I went last year and really enjoyed it! Organized well, there was plenty of space to park and room to move around inside even though it was busy! Lots of fun local vendors I didn’t even know existed and like minded parents to chat with. Really looking forward to going again!

Lori C.

We had a fantastic time today! We thought we might be there for an hour, maybe two – but nope – 4 hours of fun! Great selection of vendors – who were friendly and helpful. Very organized event and truly a gem for families. Thank you so much!


Why Attend NICE?

Palestina Baronas created the Natural Infant and Child Expo after she struggled to find events and products that catered to her holistic style of parenting. The co-owner of Instinctive Parent in Pembroke, it was also a struggle as a business to find events where she could connect with like minded families and businesses. Now in its third year and joined by Jocelyn Albertson, owner of New World Doula Services and Co-Owner of Instinctive Parent, NICE is an event that fills that void. Families can network with one another as well as discover small businesses around them that offer services that fill their specific needs.

It can be a challenge to go against the stream in parenting choices. Having an annual event where families can feel supported by their peers is so essential. The saying “it takes a village” is such a powerful truth when it comes to parenthood. So often these communities are online only and having the opportunity to meet one another in person is simply magical. A similar concept for businesses- the networking at NICE has been exceptional. Multiple connections and collaborations are born every year.
