Florida Fall Festivals – Wild & Wonderful

Florida Fall Festivals – Wild and Wonderful


It’s doubtful any other state has more festivals, events, fairs and shows than Florida. We have festivals for swamp cabbage, crabs, catfish, crawfish and Shakespeare. Florida festivals are as diverse as the population. The locations range from towns of a few hundred people to one of the biggest cities in the country. They stretch from the far reaches of the panhandle to the southernmost point in the Keys. That’s over 800 miles and 12 hours by land.

Here are a few of our upcoming favorite fall festivals.
