Mom Halo, the team behind MomFest is excited to share our newest version of our smashing event- MomFest Fall 2021, a Hybrid Experience – The first of its nature, a two day virtual and LIVE in person offer. 

This is an experience that will be unlike any other, where those can enjoy from the comfort of their homes, or partake in living colour. 

Given the nature of the Covid World, we have implemented a series of LIVE event protocols to ensure every one of our guests and participants are kept healthy and safe, while still maximizing on a good time!

It’s all about the MashUp! 
Wanna come see us live? We got you here!

MomFest HYBRID is an experience for moms, bringing together top thinkers, educators and entrepreneurs, related to all things “cool” mamahood. 

Us mamas are coming together for the first time in many months and we cannot wait to show you the best time ever! 

Welcome to MomFest Fall 2021- Hybrid experience.

      “We can do hard things. 
      I can do hard things. 
      We can face hard things.
      I can face hard things.”

      We are calling on you, to do something hard.  

      MOM HALO is asking you, our community, to join forces, and be on the front line of our effort. 

      We are building an army of moms, dads and caregivers, with one shared goal - to raise $1 Million for The Hospital for Sick Children. A cause that hits so close to home for not only our team, but for our community. 

      We invite you to suit up. The battle field for Sick Kids is lined with brave warriors, barring the wounds, rocking their beads, and together we will join them. 

      This is an act of radical generosity to support the most vulnerable kids, with the beacon of hope that is SickKids. 

      We are SO committed to this venture, and we cannot wait to see what we dream up. 

      We want you! 

      How to take part: 

      Claim a spot and become an official Project HALO supporter. 

      Become one of the official 1,000 families to commit to raising $1,000 dollars. 

      CLICK HERE to take a spot….

      SickKids is the place you never want to go, but glad it's there. 

      We can do this hard thing…. And together, we can get to $1,000,000.00!
