This event is in conjunction and partnership with Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast’s Wild About Nature Fall Family Festival.
Join Historic Spanish Point on Saturday, November 2, 2019 from 10am-4pm for a free family festival about the people of Florida’s past. Historic reenactors of Osprey’s significant figures, including Mrs. Bertha Palmer and John Webb, will be sharing their experiences before and after arriving to Spanish Point. Please note: FREE Parking and trolley transportation will be available.
Re-enactor locations and schedule:
Re-enactors are located so that you can see a few or all! When you arrive, select a location during the current time slot, then walk or use our looping tram to go to the next re-enactor location. Re-enactors will share their lives here in Osprey and what is now Historic Spanish Point.
