Summer Celebration 2023 Packed with Fun

Sioux Center’s Summer Celebration is packed with fun Thursday, June 1 through Saturday, June 3. The three days of festivities have events for all ages, and many are free!

This year, Minnesota band IV Play is returning to rock the free street dance in downtown Sioux Center on Friday, June 2. Music begins at 7:30 p.m. with local favorite, The Ruralists, and IV Play takes the stage 9 p.m.-midnight. A beverage garden and pizza will be available.

New this year: free shows by Flippenout Extreme Trampoline Show bring high-flying fun to the Centre Mall parking lot Fri., June 2 at 6 p.m. and Sat., June 3 at 10 and 11 a.m.

Summer Celebration classics will be back, like Thursday’s free Community Cook-Out, Friday’s Cruise Night along Highway 75, Saturday’s free Kids Karnival and the car show at Central Park, plus the Summer Celebration parade. A free fireworks show will be held Saturday night at the north end of town, and the Peter Pan musical will be showing each day at the air-conditioned Te Paske Theatre in the Sioux Center Middle School.

“One of the coolest parts of Summer Celebration is seeing people come together at each event to kick off summer together,” said City Manager Scott Wynja. “Come join in the fun and enjoy some of what makes Sioux Center a fantastic community.”

Delicious food is another highlight of Summer Celebration. Food vendors and food trucks will be set up downtown on Friday and food vendors will be in Central Park Saturday for delicious eats like funnel cakes, pulled pork sandwiches, Mexican tacos and corn, enchiladas, and more. A pancake breakfast Saturday at Sioux Center Fire Station 1 raises money for local schools. The Fire & Smoke BBQ Challenge is back on Saturday for a contest of flavor, ending with a chance for people to buy a ticket to decide their own favorite. 

“Due to the tremendous support of local sponsors, we are able to provide most of the weekend activities for free for everyone to enjoy. Many businesses and volunteers partner together to help provide this event that truly builds community,” stated Chamber CEO, Barb Den Herder.
