Well, it’s not a huge Florida Gator fan party (too bad). And it’s not a python roundup in the Glades.
Swamp Fest Weeki Wachee has grown from a small community fundraising festival, to an annual event that draws thousands from all over. And it’s happening again this weekend!
Swamp Fest held it’s first annual festival in the parking lot at the Weeki Wachee Area Club in 1994. Quickly outgrowing the parking lot, it moved around the corner to the Weeki Wachee Christian Camp.
Now, the festival has became so popular that it currently resides at Linda Pedersen Park. This is a fun weekend of food, fellowship, entertainment, and arts and crafts. Plus you won’t want to miss the “Swamp Monster Contest”.
Beginning on Friday March 6th. through Sunday March 8th., there are 3 full days of entertainment to enjoy. Swamp Fest attracts vendors from all over the country allowing you to purchase home-made items such as baskets, clothing, jewelry, wall art, jams & jellies, wreathes, lotions, soaps, pottery, paintings, and many more.
Food galore as Swamp Fest also hosts 6-10 food trucks including chicken sandwiches, Italian sausage, gator on a stick, “swamp dawgs”, Cuban sandwiches, Italian sausage, swamp biscuits and gravy, blooming onions and more.
