The Biggest Baby Show In The Country Is Almost Here!
To New And Expectant Families! To Your Bumps, Babies, And Toddlers!
With much enthusiasm, we invite you to the 2016 New York Baby Show, coming up on the weekend of May 14 and 15, from 10am to 4pm, at Pier 92 in NYC.
For thousands of expectant and new parents from New York City and the Tri-State Area, the annual New York Baby Show offers a fun, informative, and family-friendly day of extraordinary shopping, learning, and bonding as you make your way from pregnancy into parenthood. It takes place on the weekend of May 14 and 15, at Pier 92, in NYC.
The Baby Show offers the chance to explore at your leisure over 140 top brands and new innovative products for maternity, baby, and toddler (and have helpful conversations with people who really know their stuff). It also offers an inspiring menu of seminars with expert speakers and beloved figures from the world of parenting and pregnancy, covering everything from maternal health, to shopping for nursery and baby, to adjusting to life with baby.
In short, it’s the biggest Baby Show in the country because it’s welcoming and helpful to everyone: women and men, couples, individuals, and friends — and, of course, bumps, babies, and toddlers!
From the moment the show opens its doors on Saturday, May 14, at 10am, with the help of Bobbie Thomas (the style editor of the “TODAY” show and a new mom herself), the New York Baby Show will be overflowing with amazing features and treats all day long—including our famous stroller test track (with incredible brands to try out), moms and dads loungers, and nursing stations (to relax and enjoy the show at your own pace) and lots of great big giveaways (including a dream Babymoon). Kiddie entertainment—like parent-and-me trial classes and mini-concerts—round out the fun.
One more thing: This year’s Keynote Speaker is the BabyGuy Jamie Grayson, whose mix of deep knowledge and delight in baby products and baby life have allowed him to cultivate the largest and most engaged new parent following on Facebook, or almost anywhere else. At the Baby Show, Grayson’s main keynote seminar will focus on gear shopping and his tips on buying strollers, car seats, baby carriers, crib mattresses, breast pumps, and more; and he’s also doing a live version of his popular web series with Shari Criso on breastfeeding and early parenting.
That’s the scoop! We encourage you to roam around the this website and read all about the show and its programming and participants. For expectant and new families, the Baby Show offers a hundred points of fun and meaningful connection for you to enjoy.
The Baby Show is also a great value (see below), but the real value is the experience.

• SPEAKERS & SEMINARS
Beginning with the Keynote Speaker, the BabyGuy Jamie Grayson, there are so many good speakers this year! We recommend that you take a minute to review the seminar schedule on the Show Features page, and make a note of the seminars you don’t want to miss. Chances are that you will meet and hear not one but many people who can answer your questions on anything related to bump, pregnancy, baby, and parenting.
• STROLLER TEST TRACK
A truly unique feature of the Show, the big test track simulates real world obstacles including gravel, grass, bumps, gates, cobblestone, and street grates—allowing parents to “test drive” the great variety of stroller models (from an array of top brands) at the show! Sponsored by Diapers.com.
• FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT
Kiddie entertainers perform throughout the weekend (and throughout the venue!), offering new parents and little ones moments of joy and bonding. Not to mention the face painters! They’re around too.
• PLAY AREA
Take a break and have some fun with awesome, age-appropriate toys for babies and toddlers.
