Family Week

Family Week 2017
July 29th - August 5th

Family Week is the largest annual gathering of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer-identified families in the world. The 2017 fun-filled Week will include more opportunities than ever to build community and to get empowered on today's issues. Family Equality Council and COLAGE will partner once again to create another amazing Week full of fun in the sun with the LGBTQ parents, their children, extended families, and friends, who will join us from across the globe!

From sunrise to sunset, Family Week offers activities and events for your entire family. Each day will be filled with programming options for individual age groups, including many signature Family Week events and activities that are designed for everyone.

Register TODAY!


This year registered families will also be able to register youth ages 3 - 7 in morning children's programming. Families have the choice of three different programs with various costs and space availability. Your family must be registered for the full Family Week in order to participate in youth drop-off programming with Family Equality Council. More information and how to register below.
