About OC Kid Events

Mom to two little ones under the age of 4, Lauren Rotter felt the need first hand for a comprehensive calendar of kid-friendly events in her local OC community. While there were plenty of event calendars online, none were quite what she was looking for. Yes Adventure City is open on Saturdays, and of course there are plenty of gymnastics classes open on Sundays…but what about daily events in the area that are kid-friendly? More importantly, what about daily events in the area that are free? That’s when the idea for Orange County Kid Events and the OC Family Calendar of Events was born.

A message from our Founder:

“Thank you for visiting OC Kid Events. I created this website because I didn’t always want to spend a small fortune to enjoy daily outings with my family. OCkidevents.com is a place where parents and caregivers can visit to find out all about kid-friendly daily events in Orange County that are FREE!

Amusement parks and attractions have a full team of marketing and advertising professionals to spread the word about their high admission cost events. But what about small, local venues that offer free events for families? Those small business and public community venues don’t typically employ a large team of advertising professionals, so the events they host are usually only available to a small number of people who happen to have heard about them. My goal is to spread the word about these free community events so that Moms, Dads, Grandparents, and Caregivers all over can be in the know, and spend more time making memories with their little ones every day of the week, without having to spend a fortune every day of the week.

I am ecstatic to be able to share free Orange County, CA events with you on our innovative OC Family Calendar of Events that is launching soon! I am also happy to share with you all of my fun family outings and moments on my OC Kid’s Mom Blog. Please be sure to subscribe below and to come back to see photos, reviews, and more of all of the events we attend, and the loving family memories we make.”
