Family Activities

In the Cedar Valley, it’s a question of which memories you will make this weekend.

Attend one of the many kid-friendly events that are held all year long. Start your May through October weekend at a farmers market–let the kids pick out their favorite local veggies while you grab a fresh-baked bread and some local honey.

To bring out their creative side audition to perform in a play at the Black Hawk Children’s Theater, take an art class at the Phelps Youth Pavilion, an art museum just for kids. Explore the Cedar Valley STEM Festival, geared toward promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) careers through fun and engaging hands-on activities.

You can find a complete calendar of events in the Cedar Valley on the Cedar Valley Events Calendar or view events within the specific communities listed below:

If it’s hot, head to one of the top waterparks in the country. Play mini golf, swim and splash at the aquatic center, play laser tag, race go-karts, or take some swings in a batting cage. And if you’re lucky, it’ll be county fair and carnival season.
