Kingsport City Schools is currently securing kid-friendly organizations as vendors at the 9th Annual Back to School Expo held on July 31, 2018.

If the organization can answer "yes" to one of these three questions, they should reserve a free table:

2.)  Do you offer programs, services and activities for kids in the Kingsport City Schools area?
3.)  Do you have important information to share with area kids and their parents?

There is no registration fee or cost to attend. Vendors receive one complimentary table. This is a great resource for parents and there will be live entertainment and activities for kids, including free carousel rides for the duration of the event.
