What is the Familyfest Fun Cruise? The Familyfest Fun Cruise was created in 2020 as a new way for families to explore all that our amazing community has to offer for families! From 9am-2pm on June 1st, families can spend the day together cruising to area businesses and organizations to participate in activities, enter to win prizes, and get some deals!

Does our family have to cruise to all of the locations listed? No! Your family can go to as many or as few stops as you would like and in any order! You are in control of your family’s cruising experience!

How do I know what stops might fit our family?
Check out the listing on the Familyfest Fun Cruise Map to signify what age groups the stops cater to.

What is the cost of the Familyfest Fun Cruise? Absolutely nothing! It’s true! The Familyfest Fun Cruise is completely free for all families participating. Some stops may have additional items/services available for purchase, but no purchase is required to visit each stop.


That’s a pretty fancy unicorn I see on the Familyfest Fun Cruise marketing! Who is that? Fancy is the super amazing Familyfest mascot. She likes to travel around the Sioux Empire and meet as many friends as possible every year! She will be out cruising our community during May to get excited for the Fun Cruise this year! If you see her, come say hi & take some pictures! She absolutely loves hugs from kids!
