Kristi Yamaguchi's Family Literacy Festival
It is our sincere desire that you will partner with us by sponsoring Kristi Yamaguchi’s 2023 Annual Family Literacy Festival. This signature summer kick-off event presents a wonderful opportunity to associate your organization with three very strong and recognizable brands: Kristi Yamaguchi’s Always Dream, the San José Public Library Foundation, and the Children’s Discovery Museum.
Please contact Jodie Pulliam at jodie.pulliam@sjplf.org for more information.
The Annual Family Literacy Festival will be held on Saturday, June 10, 2023, at the Children’s Discovery Museum (located in Downtown San José). For the accessibility and convenience of our community, there will be two event slots to choose from: 9:30am-12:30pm session OR 1:30pm-4:30pm session. At both sessions, families can enjoy all the Museum has to offer along with celebrity and author story readings, hands-on activities and art projects, and family-friendly entertainment. This is all included with your special event day admission ticket to the Children’s Discovery Museum on June 10.
In addition to appearances by Olympic Gold Medalist and children’s book author Kristi Yamaguchi, past celebrity guests have included Brandi Chastain, Adonal Foyle, Polina Edmunds, Disney Jr.’s Choo Choo Soul and some of your favorite San José Sharks, San José Barracuda, and San Francisco 49ers!
