2022 Storybook Soiree – A “Supercalifragilistic-

expialidocious” Affair!

Childhood Slips Like Sand Through A Sieve.”

…said a very famous umbrella-flying nanny. What a poignant and powerful thought as we prepare for Knock Knock’s 2022 Storybook Soiree, which is sure to make you “laugh til you fly!” Travel with us to lands of whimsy and wonder where kites will fly high and you’ll never know what you’ll find around the next corner – and that’s definitely not a “piecrust promise.”

Mark your calendars and prepare for a magical evening, Thursday, November 3rd. Tickets go on sale September 5th.

Remember “Everything is Possible, even the Impossible” with your help.

  • Price: $100 per ticket
  • Date: Nov. 3, 2022
  • Time: 6:30-10:00pm

Ticket Price includes heavy hors d’oeuvres, open bar, specialty cocktail, live music and lots and lots of fun!

We need YOUR help to Keep the Pages Turning

Knock Knock is for all children. It’s a place where children make connections to the world around them and use their imaginations to create their own worlds. Purposeful, hands-on play is as vital to the development of a young child’s mind as food is to a child’s body…the Power is of play is real!

It took 14 years of unrelenting work to bring Knock Knock to fruition. After the struggle to make Knock Knock a reality, and being open for ONLY 2 and a half years, Knock Knock is now facing the unthinkable–and asking the question– how does Knock Knock survive after more than a year of being closed?

The Children of the Capital Region need Knock Knock. They need to dance, play, and imagine. Please help ensure that every single child in the Capital Region can continue to play, create and explore here at Knock Knock.

This was once a dream — a dream that few believed in–Now it is reality. And this is a reality that our children can’t live without. 

Donate today, so ALL Children can play!
