Illumination Foundation’s 5th Annual “Carnival for Kids”

When you were a kid, we’re betting the “field trip” or family day at a carnival or fair was something you looked forward to with positive glee. Cotton candy! People on stilts! Ferris wheels! Giant stuffed toys to win! Face painting! Food galore! And maybe … (ooh, cross your fingers) … maybe even a petting zoo!

Illumination Foundation, the Orange County-based non-profit agency focused on breaking the cycle of homelessness is also focused on building hope, joy and community for homeless and low-income children. For five years now, Illumination Foundation has produced a giant summer Carnival for Kids that brings every wished-for element together for a child’s perfectly memorable day.

This year, the Carnival for Kids, presented by Disneyland® Resort, takes place Saturday, July 28th, 2018 at LaPalma Park in Anaheim.

Hundreds of Illumination Foundation families are specifically invited and admission is free.

Brought to you by Disneyland® Resort, the event includes restaurateurs, seasoned carnival vendors, foundations (including the Bickerstaff Family Foundation) and corporate sponsors (including Starbucks, CalOptima and Sprouts Farmer’s Market) who work with Illumination Foundation to build a child’s mecca for that single day.

There are plenty of ways to help bring this year’s Carnival to life. You and/or your company can sponsor the event itself, provide in-kind donations such as beverages, snacks and school supplies, or sponsor a child’s happy attendance.

This event will provide supporters of Illumination Foundation an opportunity to develop positive relationships with the community, while promoting healthy and positive experiences for homeless families and their children. This is a fun experience they could not afford through other means. Go to for details on how you can get involved as a valued sponsor.
