Join us for our 2nd Annual World Down Syndrome Day Celebration at the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery! We'll have the museum to ourselves and celebrate our loved ones with Down syndrome!  

World Down Syndrome Day is held annually on March 21 of each year to raise awareness, inclusion and acceptance for the Down syndrome community. The date is special and represents how people with Down syndrome have 3 copies of the 21st chromosome.
