The Taunton Family Festival is an annual event held on the Taunton Family Children’s Home campus at 200 Taunton Family Rd. in Wewahitchka, Florida. This is our major event to raise funds to help offset cost and yearly operating expenses at the home. The 2020 event has not been scheduled at this time because of the Coronovirus outbreak.  The festival started in 2011 and has been coordinated primarily by Brian Baber and the United Methodist Men of Lynn Haven.

There are always many free games & activities going on for all ages. Take a guided tour and visit with the family throughout the day. Food, drinks & snacks will be available for purchase, along with our annual TFCH T-Shirts! All proceeds go directly to TFCH.

Cash prize and awards are at 4pm.  All kids activities throughout the day are free.

Come join us for a day of fun for all ages!

The Annual Family Fun Festival had a great turnout the past 9 years and it keeps getting better. In addition to the initial attractions of the beach volleyball tournament starting at 8am, we have a huge FREE hit called the Amazing Race starting at 10am... which allows teams made of families and friends to compete by water sliding, swimming, climbing a sand mountain and paddling their way to the finish line. There is a $25 registration fee for the Beach Volleyball Tournament, but all other activities and Amazing Race are FREE! 

VOLLEYBALL SLAM: If your team is interested in competing in the Quads Coed Volleyball Tournament, please complete your registration before TBD. Contact Diana at (850)819-0451 with any questions. Pre-registration IS REQUIRED for volleyball.

Please contact us by email or phone at any one of the numbers listed below.  Volunteers are always needed and we encourage you to experience TFCH with an open heart of service. Thank you for helping us make a difference "One Child at a Time."
