Events & Festivals in North Florida

Have the Time of your Life

Across North Florida, a bevy of festivals and events bring communities together in celebration of good food, culture, history and art. In Palatka, friends and family gather at the Downtown Street Party every third Friday of the month.  Enjoy a mouthwatering slab of ribs at a southern BBQ festival in Perry or devour some of the freshest fish at one of the oldest seafood festivals in Florida in Cedar Key. Into crafts? Find handmade wares and pieces of art at events produced by community-based art councils throughout the region. And of course, the North Florida Fair draws over 100,000 to Tallahassee every year — only an hour away in Tallahassee. With so many events, there’s something to do every month of the year!
