Florida Manatee Festival

January 18, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


The Florida Manatee Festival returns January 18th and 19th, 2020. Come join the celebration in downtown Crystal River as we honor our most famous resident!

Now in our 33rd year, the Florida Manatee Festival, presented by the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club of Crystal River, is the epicenter of all thing’s manatee. Celebrating with food, music, entertainment, and frivolity for residents and visitors alike.
Over 20,000 people each year flock to Historic Downtown Crystal River, making The Florida Manatee Festival consistently chosen one of the Best of the Best Festivals by the readers of the Citrus County Chronicle.

Festival-goers can board free bus tours to Three Sisters Springs. The tours run continuously during the festival weekend, conducted in cooperation with the City of Crystal River and the Friends of the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge, allowing visitors to see manatees in their natural settings. For a nominal charge, Manatee Boat Tours are available from the City Pier at the end of Third Street for a trip into Kings Bay and other favorite manatee hangouts.

Back on land, the sound of music fills the air with live entertainment on three different stages, while visitors enjoy the offerings of fine arts and craft artisans. A beer & wine garden and two food courts serving up a wide menu of delights; from fresh seafood to authentic, local BBQ and everything in between. Plus, International Alley, featuring food trucks, food trailers, and booths filled with epicurean delights from around the world.

The Florida Manatee Festival also serves as a showcase for non-profit organizations and local commercial businesses that serve as the foundation of our community.

The 33rd Annual Florida Manatee Festival – January 19th and the 20th in beautiful Downtown Crystal River. Brought to you by the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club of Crystal River.
