Birth Roots Events

Birth Roots hosts and participates in many events throughout the year.  Because the early years of parenting are often a huge shift in identity, we work to provide activities that support your family’s social growth and development.  We are especially enamored with fueling the development of new traditions or new ways of experiencing old traditions.  The best way to stay in the loop about fun activities, impromptu flock gatherings and cool events is to friend us on Facebook or check back to this page for event updates!

Little Monsters Ball

Little Monsters Ball – A Sweet Fall Festival – November 2, 2019

TICKETS HERE

This one-of-a-kind, snoozing-crawling-toddling-friendly, definitely not scary, baby oriented costume party is the Birth Roots’ creative endeavor to bring more fun and attention to early parenting. Local businesses and organizations have come out in a huge show of support for this idea, partnering with Birth Roots as “activity sponsors”, providing either a toddler activity station or tabling on topics of interest to parents. The intention is to create an event that specifically & successfully supports and acknowledges the unique developmental window of the youngest among us, crawling and newly toddling babies, and newly established parents. 

Huge Thanks to our 2019 Event Partner, Falmouth Pediatric Dentistry

Pollinator Parade – A Collaboration with Maine Audubon at Deering Oaks Park – June 1st 2019

Birth Roots and Maine Audubon invite you to attend this very special parade! Assemble a costume, pack a picnic, and head to Deering Oaks Park in Portland. Children AND adults are invited to dress up in butterfly, bee and bird costumes for the PARADE!

The Pollinator Parade seeks to bring attention to the critically low numbers of Monarch butterfly and the plight of many pollinator species. Educational activities will emphasize the steps we can take to help rescue the disappearing monarch. The event will conclude with a community picnic in the heart of Portland at Deering Oaks Park.
