Florida Annual Events & Festivals

Need a brake from fishing or diving? How about attending one of Florida's annual events and festivals. There are some pretty unique events that only happen in Florida and many celebrate our favorite fish species like Mullet Festivals or Lobster Fests. Year round you can find a fun event to learn about Florida's culture and inhabitants. Heck, Floridians are always coming up with some pretty crazy events and we will keep adding them to our directory as we learn about them.
