Family Fun Fest

Having fun with family and friends is more than joyful, it boosts connections and wellbeing. Give your family a boost and join us September 21-25 for a scavenger hunt celebrating and showcasing fun!

Registration for 2023 is closed.

About Family Fun Fest

Gather a team of family or friends to participate in enriching scavenger hunt activities using the free GooseChase app for iphone and android. We recommend teams of 4-6 players. Teams can participate from anywhere in Minnesota, at any time during the fun fest.

Discover new ways to enjoy time with family and friends in your community. Over the course of the fun fest, teams complete fun and enriching “missions” that build connections. For some missions teams will submit funny photos or videos as evidence of completing missions, for others teams will respond to questions.

Share and be inspired via a live feed of teams having fun across Minnesota. As teams complete missions, they share and can see fun photos, videos, and responses from other teams playing across the state. It will be a digital community coming together to engage in and celebrate family fun!

Earn points to win exciting family-friendly prizes! Each mission is worth points, and teams with the most points at the end of the week will win prizes like gift cards and activity passes to family-friendly activities.
