This fun, family-friendly celebration is aimed to honor the Village’s rich legacy and showcase our impact supporting history, education, and tradition.

Guests also can take in quilting at the Sewing Circle, Corbett Shack cooking, farm animals at the No Name Corral, classic cars and street rods, stained glass and sugar cane press demonstrations.
Activities include the the Loxahatchee Battle Preservationists interpreting two significant battles of 1838, conversations with the History and Haunts Paranormal Team at the Riddle House, cake walks with Chef Stephanie, face painting, old timey kids’ games, and other crafts.
