The Suwannee River Regional Library, Live Oak Artists Guild, UF/IFAS Extension in Suwannee County and the Live Oak Museum have partnered together and are hosting three festivals in Live Oak. The first one, Heritage Fall Festival, will be November 18 at the Heritage Park and Gardens, 1004 Helvenston St SE, Live Oak, Florida.

The Heritage Fall Festival will have pre-festival opening activities at Suwannee Regional Library on November 13, at 6.m. with story times, quilt displays, Teen and children’s art shows and special presentations and workshops.

The second festival, All Aboard, will celebrate the history of transportation, including the major contribution of the railroad and its impact on the growth in North Florida. The All Aboard festival is scheduled for February 3, 2024 at the Live Oak Museum and Train Station.

In the spring, our Wildflower Festival will be at Heritage Park and Gardens on April 27, in time to celebrate the wildflower blossoming that North Florida is famous for.

Each festival will include music by local musicians, food trucks, vendors, storytellers and presenters, and family centered fun activities.
