This Year's Annual Family Cafe
The Family Cafe invites you to attend Florida's premier event for people with disabilities, The Annual Family Cafe!
The Annual Family Cafe is the nation's largest cross-disability event. Last year's 20th Anniversary Family Cafe attracted some 11,840 participants!
Since 1998, The Annual Family Cafe has brought together thousands of individuals with disabilities and their family members for three days of information, training and networking each June. With a great range of individual breakout sessions, a packed Exhibit Hall with dozens of vendors, and a series of special events including Keynote speakers and The Governors’ Summit on Disabilities, The Annual Family Café offers families exposure to a wide range of public and private resources, opportunities to find support by networking with other families, and unprecedented access to policy-making officials.
The 20th Anniversary Family Cafe will be held on June 7-9, 2019 in Orlando. We hope to see you there!
The registration brochure for The 21st Annual Family Cafe is now available! If you attended last year's event, you will receive a copy in the mail. Please feel free to reproduce the brochure and share it with people in your community.
Online registration will open on Thursday, February 14, 2019.
The event program for The 21st Annual Family Cafe will be available in May. To get a sense of what to expect, check out the full program for The 20th Anniversary Family Cafe here.
The Family Cafe remains committed to connecting attendees with information and resources at minimal cost, so there is no registration fee for individuals with disabilities and their family members.
The Family Cafe also offers limited financial assistance to provide for the cost of hotel accommodations on-site at The Annual Family Cafe. Attendees can request assistance as part of the registration process. Financial assistance is distributed through a lottery process; whether you register online, by mail, or by fax, your odds of receiving assistance are the same.
The 21st Annual Family Cafe will be held at the Hyatt Regency Orlando. Rooms are available at the Hyatt at the special event rate of $129/night.
The 21st Annual Family Cafe promises to be a truly remarkable event for Floridians with disabilities and their families, and we very much hope you will be able to attend!
See you in June!
