Where the Green Generation comes to learn, play and celebrate the Bay!
At Hampton Bay Days, Bay Education is our mission. The Kid's Play and Learn about the Bay area features a full schedule of presenters and children's entertainers along with 20+ booths of environmental, inter-active fun.
Families will discover live animal shows, aquatic art workshops, interactive presentations and children's entertainment all focused on the "Go Green Generation". Free and open to the public. Bay Education Area Hours: Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday noon to 6 p.m. The Bay Education area is located between Eaton and Wine Streets.
Hampton Bay Days would like to thank all of the volunteers who participated in Clean The Bay Day's Downtown Hampton shoreline clean up on June 6th. Your efforts are very much appreciated!
Bay Days Foundation History
In 1985, the festival became a not-for-profit, non-stock 501(c)(4) corporation. In 1997 a new 501(c)(3) Bay Days Foundation was created to further expand Bay Days' environmental goals. This supports the "Kid's Play" Chesapeake Bay Education Area in the festival and the year-round initiatives of the Foundation.
Continued support of this area is critical to promoting the conservation of the Chesapeake Bay and its natural resources and to instilling the importance of preserving the environment in tomorrow's generation. Grants made to the Hampton Bay Days Foundation, a 501 (c) (3), used to fund activity in this area of the festival are fully deductible.
