BACK TO SCHOOL BASH
August 15 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
The Mall at UTC’s Back to School Bash
Saturday, August 15 | 10 am – 3 pm
10 – 11 am (Sensory-Friendly “Quiet Hour”)
This year safety is our priority for both vendors and event guests, so we recommend all wear masks. Our vendors will have plexiglass shields on their booths, and we will have Hand Sanitation Stations placed throughout the event. We will also feature a Touch Free Photo Booth, Touch Free Hair Coloring, and more.
Our Back to School Bash caters to families with both neuro-diverse and neuro-typical children. We are opening up our doors an hour early for these full-inclusion families to come and collect school supplies in a calm setting. Our Sensory Hour runs from 10am to 11am. Register now to reserve a backpack, while supplies last.
For the backpack giveaways, families must register their children for a backpack in advance this year. In addition, we will be staggering giving the 250 backpacks away to eliminate lines forming at each event. The backpacks will be handed out at their booth. Many of the vendors will be offering school supplies and take-home activities during the events to fill up your backpack. Backpacks will not be stuffed in advance.
The Simply Events Full-Inclusion Back to School Bashes is free to attend. All school supplies are also free, while supplies last.
