Siouxland Monthly Events Lists

Each month I publish a post listing things to do in Sioux City and other neighboring communities, with the focus on kid-friendly and family-friendly events and activities, both free and with a cost. I hope the list inspires you to do something special together with your family!

Check back here anytime for easy links to the latest event posts, and feel free to e-mail me, or send me a message on Facebook or Instagram if you know of an event we should add to one of our posts! Event posts are updated continuously throughout the month as I hear about new events and new details to add. I'm also working on switching over to a format where I will reuse the same post for a particular month each year, to make it easier to make sure events that happen annually are included! Posts will be updated to clearly say at the top of the post what year they're updated for!
