June Events for Siouxland Families

Every month I share some of 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 June, you might also be interested in my guide to pools & swim lessons in Siouxland, my post about Siouxland Splash Pads, or my post about summer day camps 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 and/or social media accounts 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.
