Biscayne National Park Family Fun Fest 2020:
Twenty Years of Extrordinary Stories
"What unites people? Stories. There's nothing more powerful than a good story." - Tyrion Lannister, Game of Thrones
Biscayne National Park’s Family Fun Fest began in 2001 as a way for the local community to connect with the diverse stories of the park on a regular basis through fun, hands-on activities that family members of all generations could enjoy. The 20th season of this now multi-award winning event kicks off on December 8, 2019. This year's theme is "Twenty Years of Extraordinary Stories" and pays homage to timeless tales that appeal to all ages. As always, families are encouraged to dress the part to add to the fun. Family Fun Fest Junior lets the toddlers join in the fun with special activities designed just for them. Free transportation is available aboard the Homestead National Parks Trolley departing from Losner Park in downtown Homestead.
