Old Florida Festival

This event is held every March  in Naples, Florida. The OLD FLORIDA FESTIVAL is designed to preserve and protect the local traditions and folkways that are rapidly disappearing from our daily lives, and to pass this important heritage to the next generation of citizens. The OLD FLORIDA FESTIVAL will be arranged on the Collier museum’s festival grounds in distinctive groupings or camps with each representing a particular cultural theme or era in Florida history including:

Paleoindians: Observe how our stone age man made and used flint tools!

Calusa Indians: Watch the Calusa make and use shell tools and palm-fiber rope.

Seminole: Each Seminole camp consists of a cluster of these chickees for living, sleeping and a separate chickee for cooking, and preparing food.
