Community Engagement Program
Community Engagement increases access to Fairyland for underserved children and families.
We believe that every child should have access to Fairyland. Each year, we waive the admission fee for more than 9,000 guests through field trips and free passes distributed through our community partners. Fairyland provides sponsored memberships to income-qualifying families in our community, through our partners, and by direct application. We also host family days in collaboration with organizations such as City of Oakland Head Start, Oakland Rotary, and Port of Oakland.
If your organization is interested in collaborating, please contact Vicky Chen, Senior Director of Community Engagement and Education.
Transportation and admission fees can be a barrier for schools that want to give children an educational and enriching field-trip experience. The Community Engagement Program offers qualifying schools, preschools, and community groups a magical field-trip experience with admission fee waived. In some cases, transportation and Magic Keys are provided.
To qualify for a sponsored field trip, your organization must meet the following criteria:
- Serve low-income children in pre-K to second grade
- Be unable to afford to come to Fairyland
To book a field trip use the “Register” button below. If you don’t qualify for an admission-free field trip, or funds are no longer available, you will have the option to book a field trip at the group rate of $8 per person. Please allow 3 to 4 weeks for application processing and confirmation. If you have any questions about the process, please email Vicky Chen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
