Crane River Theater, in partnership with the Kearney Cultural Partners, hosted the Family Fun Fest in August 2022. Stay tuned for the next event in 2023!
It’s a day of free family fun, filled with music, art, theater, dance, culture, and more! Kids can step into a giant bubble, run the obstacle course, meet Disney Princesses, take part in a Shinja, Zumba or Yoga workshop, step inside a fire truck, create balloon animals, jump in the bounce houses, and visit all of our interactive stations. Families can also meet stilt walkers, see amazing fire jugglers, and enjoy special live performances featuring Edgerton Explorit Center, Polka Dot Entertainment, and The String Beans!
