About the event

Mississippi Public Broadcasting’s Summer Learning Family Fun Day returns to the Jackson Convention Complex, Saturday, June 17 from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Education and health-related vendors from across Mississippi will be on hand to provide resources and fun hands-on learning stations.

Come enjoy hands-on activities and a book giveaway, in addition to meeting MPB and PBS characters like Ed Said, Alma's Way, Daniel Tiger, and McGruff. Also, enjoy special performances from Ed Said and Move2Learn.

Our theme this year is "All together…together." The main goal is to enrich the lives of Mississippi families through literacy activities. We aim to engage and encourage families to learn together. Summer Learning Family Fun Day is an example of how MPB interacts with its communities to promote summer learning. Summer reading is critical and helps prevent the “summer learning slide.” It also supports student learning and engagement.

MPB is collaborating with many partner organizations to call attention to the importance of summer learning opportunities and celebrate the impact of high-quality programs in curbing the harmful effects of summer learning loss.

Sponsored in part by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Mississippi.
