Big Cypress Swamp Heritage Festival

SHF logo

Big Cypress National Preserve staff and partners have been proud to offer the Swamp Heritage Festival for the past six years. This family friendly event has welcomed new and returning visitors to explore and discover the unique cultural and natural legacy of the preserve and its past and present inhabitants. In 2017 we are giving the program a rest year to allow for renewed planning, organization, and partnership opportunities in the future. Keep an eye out for planning and a new direction in the future. We appreciate the past support and participation and welcome your input on what a future festival or event might look like.

This festival provides a venue for individuals and groups with a deep connection to the Big Cypress Swamp an opportunity to share stories of the past and hopes for the future related to this special place.
