Celebrated in Loveland since 2002

The City of Loveland, with the help of the Thompson School District, will celebrate the annual Colorado Children’s Day on Monday, April 20 at Fairgrounds Park.

The event was founded by long-time resident Annie Hall who believed that children deserved a day totally dedicated to celebration and enjoyment.

Last year, more than 2,500 children and their parents enjoyed this fun-filled annual event that combines fun with hands-on learning and experiential education.

Activities - coming soon!

Colorado Children's Day History

Children’s Day is the result of the long-time dream of Loveland resident Annie Hall, who lived for 100 years as the biggest fan of children and celebrating them and their spirit. With Annie’s request, Colorado Senator Stan Matsunaka sponsored Senate Joint Resolution 01-015 in March 2001, which created a Colorado Children’s Day to be celebrated each year on the first Wednesday in March. The resolution was unanimously passed by the Colorado legislature. The City of Loveland in cooperation with Thompson School District has been celebrating Colorado Children’s Day since 2002. The day that the event is celebrated has been adjusted over time to better accommodate school schedules, but is still celebrated in Loveland in Annie’s memory.
