The two day festival will be held at Linda Pedersen Park, located at 6300 Shoal Line Blvd. between Hernando Beach and Weeki Wachee, Florida.

Look for additional parking in Hernando Beach and on Cortez Blvd in Weeki Wachee, where you can catch a free shuttle ride to the Swamp Fest.

Residents in the waterfront communities of Hernando Beach and Weeki Wachee, Florida know of the increase in traffic on this weekend and there will be many yard sales in the area this weekend.  So, if you love yard saling and don’t want to pass up an opportunity for a good bargain, here is another reason to visit Hernando Beach and Weeki Wachee this weekend!

Entry fee is $3.00 per person, free admission for children under 12.  The proceeds will benefit three local community organizations, Weeki Wachee Area Club, Weeki Wachee Crime Watch, and the Hernando Environmental Land Protectors.

Hi Silvia

I've never been to a Swamp Fest. That sounds like fun, lots of goodies to sample and things to hunt for.  What will you be dressing up as?

Silvia, the first thing that comes to mind when you say SWAMP FEST is alligators, but did not see that on your list of events.   :-)    Sure looks like fun with all the planned activities and great food!

Debra, thanks, fun for all ages!!!

Joan, alligators are not permitted at this event!  Neither are dogs, I think it's to keep them sane and protected from the masses! :-)
