As the owner and publisher of Go Valley Kids I am passionate about connecting families with resources and businesses in our community.


  1. I love the site and depend on it as a stay at home mom to find activities and events for my two-year-old. However, I live in Oshkosh and I find that many Oshkosh moms are looking for a comprehensive list of activities and resources for their children, too. Could you start adding Oshkosh activities to this calendar? It would be so helpful!
