Benoît Gagnon takes over!

Montréal, October 2, 2017 - Louise Benoit, the Founding President of the Parents and Kids Fair, is delighted to welcome a new spokesperson to the popular famfest for 2018. After five gratifying years as godmother of the Fair, Marie-Élaine Thibert has passed the torch to well-known radio and TV host – and model modern-day dad – Benoît Gagnon! “It is with great pride that I accepted to the join the Parents and Kids Fair 2018 team. As a proud father of three children, every day is confirmation that my life would not be what it is today were it not for the amazing responsibility I feel towards Mathieu, Sophie and Charles. Parenting has changed a lot over the years, and I genuinely consider myself a modern-day dad. As a man, as a father, I am very involved in my kids’ lives, and this is paramount for me. My family is far from perfect. But being a parent today also means working through the imperfections.

In other words, parenting is a love and learn experience, day in and day out! And at Canada’s biggest consumer fair for families, you’ll meet exhibitors who are passionate about what they do, and discover the best products, services and resources for children ages 0 to 6.

If you’re a parent or will be one soon, this show is A MUST for you! Experiencing the Fair in Montréal or Québec City is one-of-a-kind. And I’ll be there, for your kids and my little Charles,” said Benoît Gagnon.
