Default American Frog Day 2013- NYC

American Frog Day is back in New York City for 2013 and will be on Saturday September 14

Our goal is to have an even better show and sale than in 2011. Thanks to everyone who attended and contributed to making Frog Day 2007 & 2011 in NYC such a big success

This year we have an exciting new venue, the Staten Island Zoo, that will help bring the private and public sectors of amphibian conservartion closer together.

Staten Island Zoo

Please bookmark Home | Frog Day 2013 | Staten Island - NYC and check frequently for updates.

Facebook users can find Frog day here:
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Americ...256955?fref=ts

The hotel information will be announced in the coming weeks.

This is going to be more than a one day event. The friday before will include field trips to New York area museums, Zoos, gardens and parks, followed by a mixer and keynote speaker.

A seminar series, dinner, and benefit Auction is being planned for Saturday night after the show and sale.

If you are interested in vending please go to http://bit.ly/XVTIB7 and fill out a vendor application

Thanks, hope to see you there!

Staten Island's local businesses are still making a comeback from Super Storm Sandy. This would help them as well for those staying and eating/shopping local. I'll make my way down to this one.

I'm hoping to talk the family into a road trip to NYC. If not, then maybe organizing a carpool with some fellow local froggers.

Sounds great Matt

I am sure you will knock it out of the park again this time!

I'll likely try and vend with some NEFG members.

Excellent.

Just curious, when you mentioned day trips, are there any kid centered activities or is this mostly an adult play day?

The trips are usually adult oriented. Hwever since the event is hosted at the Staten Island Zoo they might have some more kid oriented activities and even trips if there is enough interest. what day? Friday or Saturday?

NYC schools might be closed that Friday for Yom Kippur which means the zoo might plan a kid oriented activity.

more info to come, let us know your interests!

We would most likely be attending on Saturday.

I was thinking their might be some activities for kiddies since it will be held at the zoo. He's a tiny guy though so he might just stay home.

It just didn't work out logistically for AZ in 2013. The weather plays a major factor there and when the temps are suitable for walking across a parking lot without cooking your frogs it's also suitable for weddings and other events so just securing a venue can be a real challenge. We did our best to keep it in AZ, but fortunately Matt was able to step up and take on the responsiblity of hosting the show in a great venue at a great time.

Matt really saved the day, as one of the other alternatives was NO AFD in 2013 !

The show will be hosted in San Jose in 2014 (May 24, 2014 - Memorial Day Weekend) and then back to AZ in 2015, so make sure you plan early and attend one (or both!) of those events.

Big thanks to Matt for keeping the show streak alive!

Why limit it? Make it 3!
One for WC (Cali), one for the MidWest (Chicago) & one for EC (NY).

The positive with that thought is a lot more cash could be raised for a great cause!

While I'd prefer Chicago for Midwest, St. Louis would be another good Midwest location to shift it to the southwest a little more.

I actually have some really good connections with the MO department of tourism... I could definitely help out with that one.

The only problem is that it takes the event farther from all the Ohioans (San Diego-ites? San Diego-ins? San Diego-uns? Haha) which would suck...

Yes it does ...
And according to Chris Miller, he said that @ Frog Day in Chicago, a decent amount of people that came were from Ohio. So much so, he suggested that Ohio might be a good place to have Frog Day.
I'd have no problem trying to put it together if someone wants to help me/guide me on what to do to make it happen.
