The Siouxland Families Blog is dedicated to connecting Sioux City area families to local fun!

If you are a parent, grandparent, babysitter, nanny, or other caregiver of children in the Siouxland area, I want this to be your place to find out about fun things to do with kids in Sioux City and nearby, like library storytimes, fairs and festivals, concerts and plays, and much more.

If you hear about a family friendly event or activity in Sioux City, Iowa; South Sioux City, Nebraska; North Sioux City, South Dakota, or surrounding communities in Northwest Iowa, Southeast South Dakota, or Northwestern Nebraska, please let me know!

You can reach me by leaving a comment on this page, by sending me an e-mail, or by leaving a comment in the Siouxland Family Friendly Events Facebook Group.

You can also connect with me:

Besides family friendly fun in Siouxland, I also love blogging about restaurants and food trucks from a mom's perspective, and about places that make great vacations for Siouxland area families. Occasionally I receive free admission, free food, or free tickets, or am otherwise compensated for posting. I will always make it very clear when that is the case!


I believe Siouxland is a great place to live and raise kids and I'm so excited to share that with you all! Thanks for stopping by!

For medical information on COVID-19, please visit the CDC's coronavirus page or Mayo Clinic coronavirus page
Wow, a lot has changed since I first posted this! When I first started this post, the nearest outbreak of COVID-19 was one family in Omaha! Now, we have seen nearly everything in our tri-state area closed to try to flatten the curve, and the number of cases skyrocketed higher than many people thought possible, yet mercifully lower than many of the projection models. 
I did a major update on this post in June 2020 and a small update in July 2020, and it will now reflect what is re-opening in our area! I will try to keep it up to date, so check back for updates, but I do not run any of these organizations, and I encourage you to seek out their individual websites and social media to confirm closings that af…

Halloween in Sioux City & Siouxland

Siouxland rocks at Halloween. We've got everything from kid-friendly trunk-or-treat events and craft projects to a possibly-haunted former asylum that will terrify even teens.
