Family Fun Fest
Family Fun Fest is a free public program held on the second Sunday of every month from December through April. Each month, a different aspect of the park's diverse resources is highlighted at five hands-on activity stations located around the Dante Fascell Visitor Center. Participants receive a "passport" that they get punched as they complete each station. Those who get all five punches earn a specially-designed button to remember their day.
Family Fun Fest is made possible through funding provided by the Captain Bob Lewis Billfish Challenge and the Bobby Duryea Memorial Fund at the South Florida National Parks Trust, with additional support from the Biscayne Bay Aquatic Preserve, local businesses and organizations, and a host of dedicated volunteers.

The event's signature zany themes, creative activities and colorful buttons will all be back - and its all FREE!
