The festival’s venue, Smashbox Studios, will offer state-of-the-art design and technology as a backdrop for the fun activities that kids of all ages will enjoy with their families.

Every day, 600 children become newly infected with HIV. EGPAF is committed to getting that number to zero through its lifesaving work to treat and prevent pediatric HIV around the world. Since 1989, A Time For Heroes has raised more than $35 million to support EGPAF’s commitment to creating a world where no child has AIDS.
More special guests and activities will be announced closer to the date of the event.
