Smiling Family

Register to Join Us at the 21st Annual Family Fun Fest!

The Children's Advisory Commission's FAMILY FUN FEST takes place towards the end of each winter and is a GREAT WAY to get families out of the house and spend time together with FREE activities, games, and crafts while gathering information about the services, products, and activities of the many organizations, businesses, clubs, organizations, and churches serving Indiana County.​


Frequently asked questions

  1. When will table assignment be provided? We will announce table assignment in the last half of Febraury.

  2. What is your refund policy? Unfortunately, we will be unable to refund your registration.

  3. When is the last day to register? Registration ends midnight January 31, 2024.

  4. Who can register and when? Human Service agencies, businesses, organizations, civic clubs, churches, etc. that serve Indiana County families are invited to join us. Members of the CAC will be given a one-week advance opportunity to register before we extended it to the general public.

  5. What if our agency cannot stay the whole four hours until 3:00PM? We kindly ask that you do not register your organization if you are unable to stay the duration so that that your booth can be available to an organization that is able to stay the whole time.

  6. Must our table have an activity?  By all means, YES! We want children to have fun. That's the biggest draw to this event. It is also a great opportunity to talk to parents while the little ones are busy.

What to expect:

  • In it's 21st year, the CAC expects at least 40 registered groups and 450+ families (700-900 children!). This is a great opportunity to reach an incredible amount of Indiana County families within a short four-hour time commitment.

  • Please come prepare with activities, crafts, and games to accommodate a large amount of families. At least 90% of all families approach each and every table, so keep this in mind when ordering your supplies. If at all possible, plan for more than one person to man your booth as often the flow of people can become overwhelming.

  • Think beyond coloring pages. Get creative when deciding upon your table activity... a craft, a game, a puzzle page, an exercise, etc.

  • We also ask that you keep to the theme of GAME SHOW and incorporate your take of game show activity at your booth. (THINK: Let's Make a Deal, The Price is Right, A Minute-to-Win-It!, Concentration, Jeopardy!, Name That Tune, etc.)

  • Please add on your chair, and electricity needs when selecting your "tickets." Limit to two tables ($30 each). Tables are 8' long. If no indication is made, you will be issued one (1) table, two (2) chairs, and no electricity.

  • SKIRTING IS REQUIRED (or table covering MUST cover the full front of the table).
