Family Day at Sylvester Turner Park
The fun starts April 9

April 4, 2022 — Mayor Sylvester Turner invites Houstonians to join him in his annual Family Day with music, baseball, games and food.

The 14th Family Day will take place from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday April 9, at Sylvester Turner Park, 2800 West Little York. The event is free.

Family Day includes three stages with music and other entertainment. J. Paul Jr. and the Zydeco Nubreeds, Carver High School Performing Arts Students, Tiger Rock Martial Arts, Operation Get Fit and more will perform throughout the afternoon.

“I look forward to welcoming everyone to our traditional Family Day celebration this year,” said Mayor Turner. “Over the past two years, we’ve reinvented the event and given out food and water because of the pandemic. But this year, we’ll be going back to our roots. There will be lots of fun activities, and I hope everyone will join us for a safe and family-friendly event.”

There will be inflatable games, a rock wall to climb, train rides for small children, face painting, a senior tent will provide a gathering place for our seniors and the ZooMobile at the Houston Zoo will bring animals to meet.

The park’s Major League Baseball/Houston Astros Urban Youth Academy will host youth baseball games at three of the park’s fields beginning at noon.

Food will be plentiful and free. There will be turkey legs, hot dogs, sausages on a stick, corn on the cob, nachos, popcorn and snow cones.

Metro will provide free shuttles from two offsite parking lots: Carver High School, 2100 S. Victory, and Lone Star College, Victory Campus, 4141 Victory. Plus, attendees can park for free at Living Word Fellowship Church, 7350 TC Jester, and walk the two blocks to the park.
