Blue Spring State Park Manatee Festival

Join Wekiva Wild and Scenic River System and the Wekiva- Middle St. Johns Aquatic Preserve at Blue Spring State Park for the Manatee Festival! This is an annual event celebrating Florida’s most charismatic marine mammal- the manatee!

We will be hosting two tents at this event and we need volunteers! The Manatee Festival is January 22-23, 2022 at Blue Spring State Park, 2100 W French Ave, Orange City, FL 32763. The event is 9:00 AM- 5:00 PM. We need volunteers to help us at our tents from 8:30 AM- 5:30 PM on both days. Email the River Ambassador to sign up to volunteer! You’ll have plenty of time to walk around and enjoy the festival and visit the manatees. Help us run our Question Wheel and hand out prizes!
