Forgotten Coast Black Bear Festival
The Forgotten Coast Black Bear Festival is coming back to Carrabelle, Florida. Come help us celebrate one of the Forgotten Coast's most treasured species!
The festival is an opportunity for Floridians of all ages to learn about wildlife and the environment around them. This years celebrations will include favorite programs such as the "Procession of Species" parade produced by Carrabelle Cares, bear and bird field trips to Tate's Hell state Forest and a workshop on living with bears and bear-proofing your trash.
We are adding some terrific new programs such as our "Bear Banners" created through a program with local school children. We will be giving a nice prize for the best home baked "Fruit Pie" brought to the festival. Prizes will also be offered for the best original painting and sculpture displayed at the Festival.
The festival will have live music, stories and tall tales told and read by local residents and authors. There will be food, arts and crafts for sale and lots of fun for all.
