10 a.m.-4 p.m., Sunday, October 8
Princess Place Preserve
For 13 years, the annual Creekside Festival has invited Flagler County residents and guests to gather under the majestic oaks at Princess Place Preserve for a local tradition that celebrates the natural beauty of Northeast Florida. Held on the shores of Pellicer Creek, the Creekside Festival has become one of the most popular festivals around, attracting more than 10,000 visitors each year. The draw? A two-day festival with family friendly activities including live bluegrass music, historical demonstrations and exhibits, arts and crafts vendors, a photography contest, a kids’ zone, pony rides, amazing food vendors and much more, all in a picturesque natural setting. Outdoor enthusiasts can explore nearby hiking trails, bring a kayak, or fish in the salt marshes along the Matanzas River and Pellicer Creek. History buffs will appreciate the continued partnership with Heritage Crossroads that brings historical demonstrators and exhibits to the festival, sharing stories of the area’s rich heritage and giving Princess Place the historical recognition it deserves. If live music, a serene natural setting, and educational opportunities are not enough, visitors can shop for handcrafted treasures at arts and crafts booths, walk through a photo exhibit featuring work from Flagler Palm Coast High School students, enjoy a delicious meal or snack from food vendors and tour the hunting lodge. Admission is $7 per carload per day. For more details, visit: www.FlaglerChamber.org/pages/creekside-festival
