Little Piglet Fair Kicks Off to Support Efforts to Improve the Lives of Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Differences

El Paso, Texas (May 2, 2023) — The Little Piglet Fair kicks off for the first time on Sunday, May 7, from 1pm to 6pm at the El Paso Rhino’s hockey arena, located at 4100 E. Paisano. Proceeds from this family-friendly event to benefit the El Paso Special Needs Education Center (Every Little Blessing Preschool).


The Little Piglet Fair will provide a fun-filled experience for a beautiful Sunday afternoon, with inflatables, dance, face painting, arts and crafts, ice skating and more. In addition to all of this activity, the fair will also offer delicious food, such as Howdy Homemade Ice Cream (an ice cream shop dedicated to creating jobs for people with intellectual and developmental differences) and a variety of vendors!


Pre-sale tickets are available online for $20 each, and ages two and under are free. Cost of tickets are $25 at the door, on the day of the event.


“The Little Piglet Fair is an off-shoot of our Whole Hog BBQ event, that symbolizes the ‘whole hog’ commitment to improving the lives of individuals with Down syndrome, and their families. We appreciate the support of the public, and encourage everyone to come out and have a great time,” said Jessica Quinn, director of El Paso Special Needs Education Center (Every Little Blessing Preschool).
