January Events for Siouxland Kids & Families

Every month I bring you the best things to do in Sioux City and Siouxland, from storytimes and crafts to music festivals, streaming concerts, and holidays from silly to serious. This January, you might also be interested in my posts on indoor play in Sioux City, indoor play in Sioux Falls, and Snow Sports in Siouxland.  I hope this event list inspires you to go make some happy memories with your family this month!

I do not run any of these events and encourage you to call or visit the websites of the hosting locations, organizations, or stores with any questions and to confirm details. Many paid events and some free events require tickets or registration, and some may sell out or fill up quickly or very far in advance. Age and other recommendations are general guidelines provided by the event or activity organizer and should not be considered legal or medical advice and may not apply well to all children.
