A Fight for Freedom: Attack on Fort King 

This two-day event centers on the re-enactment of Osceola's attack on Fort King and the demise of the Indian Agent Wiley Thompson - an event that lead to the start of the Second Seminole War.

A Seminole village and soldiers' encampment will show what life was like in the 1830s. Experience time-period vendors, traditional skills workshops, food, drinks and games such as tomahawk throwing and horseshoes!

Please stay tuned for information about the upcoming 2020 event!
