For over 18 years the Florida Bat Festival has been celebrating bats, the world’s most famous flying mammal! With incredible activities, vendors, beer garden, & entertainment, and over 5,000 FL residents and visitors attending each year, the Florida Bat Festival is a yearly family friendly fall event loved by many! Join Lubee and our 19th Annual Florida Bat Festival on Saturday, October 21st, 2023 from 10-5pm!
We hope that you’ll take part in our celebration as Lubee continues to spread conservation awareness while enjoying all the batty fun festivities! The FL Bat Festival is a highly anticipated family friendly, fall festival. Every year, the festival becomes a little bigger, as we continuously bring in more local artisans, businesses, conservation groups, FL breweries, & delicious food vendors. There’s something for everyone, from crafts, kid’s bouncy huts, activities, and nature play areas, to live music, silent auction/raffles, and of course the stars of the event, are our beautiful Bats!
The 2022 Florida Bat Festival was attended by 5,000 visitors! During the festival, attendees had a chance to visit with over 100 vendors, including but not limited to, informational, artisans, crafts, breweries and food merchants. All vendors had another amazing year of selling out of their wares and reaching new customers.
