Free Family Fun Fest at Biscayne National Park

Family Fun Fest

Family Fun Fest is a free public program at Biscayne National Park. Each month, a different aspect of the park's diverse resources is highlighted at five hands-on activity stations around the Dante Fascell Visitor Center at the Park. The event is from 1-4 p.m.

Participants receive a passport that is stamped at each station and when all five punches are received on the passport they receive a specially designed button. There is also a special play area for toddlers.

The 2020 themes are:

  • Fables and Fairy Tales – March 8, 2020 – 1 – 4 p.m.

Some of your favorite children’s tales brought to life, with a twist! See what Snow White, Rip Van Winkle and The Fox and The Hound have been up to at Biscayne!

  • Biscayne’s Mightiest Heroes – April 5, 2020 – 1 – 4 p.m. (Note date change to FIRST Sunday!)

A woman who changes the weather? A guy who builds webs to climb? A superhero TREE? MARVEL-ous!

Participants who earn all five buttons in a season are declared “Family Fun Fest Fanatics” and earn a special award in April.

In addition to five activity stations at each event, there will also be one activity station focusing on theme-related creative play for parents with toddlers.

Biscayne National Park is located at 9700 SW 328 St., Homestead, FL 33033.
