Family Day in Kazakhstan is celebrated annually on the second Sunday of September. It was initiated by President Nursultan Nazarbayev. The first celebration of Family Day was held in 2013.

Family Day was created in order to raise public awareness of important family-related issues such as reproductive health, family planning, and the prevention of unwanted pregnancies. It also aims to draw the attention of the general public to common family problems, especially those of young families, large families, single-parent families, as well as the families of veterans and people with disabilities.

Family Day in Kazakhstan is marked with various events and activities, including concerts and other cultural events, sports competitions, lectures on family planning and prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, congratulations to young spouses who married or became parents on family day, and events honoring couples that have been married for 50, 60 or 70 years.

It has become a tradition to celebrate the Family Day every year, to hold the National Contest "Happy Family".

Based on the results of the final round of the contest via SMS / internet voting, which was held from August 31 to September 7, the winner's family was determined. The family of Niyazkulovs from the Zhambyl region became a laureate of the National Contest in 2018. Head of the family Niyazkulov Umen (83 years) worked for more than 40 years as a teacher and director in a rural school. Niyazkulov's wife Bayan (80 years) worked as a primary school teacher for 26 years. Pedagogical activities of the older generation were continued by children and grandchildren. The total pedagogical experience of the dynasty in three generations is 198 years. Spouses together 62 years, brought up 12 children and 32 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren are raised.
