ABOUT


The Convention of Large Families is a three-day event for families with three or more children from all over Poland. It is organised by: The "Three Plus" Large Family Association and the city where the Convention is held in a given year.

Szczecin will be the venue for the forthcoming convention taking place between the 1st and 3rd of June 2018.

This year the event is also open to large families from Europe, from associations affiliated under the European Large Families Confederation.

The Convention's primary objectives are for large families to mingle and get to know one another, supporting efforts furthering family oriented policies and the establishing a positive image of a large family.

  • 2015 – 3rd Nationwide Convention of Large Families in Łowicz
  • 2016 – 4th Nationwide Convention of Large Families in Gniezno
  • 2017 – 5th Nationwide Convention of Large Families in Nysa

The families attending the convention will:

  • take part in the ELFAC General Assembly meeting (representatives of member associations)
  • attend the IX European Large Families Conference
  • meet large families from all over Poland and Europe
  • have an opportunity to discover one of the most interesting Polish cities
  • be able to participate in selected activities and workshops for parents and children and also attend concerts
