Welcome to Firefest 2021!
You may ask, what is Firefest?
Firefest is a community event to celebrate Florida’s relationship with fire. Learn about the importance of prescribed fire, safety awareness, and how important fire truly is to our local wildlife and community. Join us for a day of live fire demos, hayrides and swamp buggy tours through the park, pumpkin patches, campfires, live music, food and drinks, ghost tours, and much more!
