2013 Swamp Heritage Festival
Come celebrate the history and culture of South Florida for the third annual Swamp Heritage Festival at the Big Cypress National Preserve Welcome Center (5 minutes east of SR29 near Everglades City). Learn about the history of this rugged, yet beautiful environment through park rangers, volunteers, local experts and residents that will share their love of the swamp through programs, activities, and thought-provoking presentations. This FREE family-friendly event shines a spotlight upon the inhabitants of early south Florida, whose rugged strength and pioneering spirit contributed to the shaping of today's unique and diverse culture. Through living history demonstrations, informative presentations, and exhibits everyone can learn what daily life was like in such a remote, and at times, inhospitable place. These unique chapters in American history add to the rich and colorful tableau that comprises our shared past and present.
