We are sorry to report that the 2020 Ocali Country Days festival has been canceled. This decision is based on a trend of increasing local cases of Covid-19. Based on what we know, it appears that this trend will continue for the rest of the calendar year at a minimum. We cannot ask our staff, volunteers and the general public to attend a large event and risk exposure. The only safe choice is to cancel. We look forward to hosting Ocali Country Days in 2021 and will miss seeing everyone this November.
The Ocali Country Days festival takes place on the second weekend of November each year. This popular event celebrates the pioneer spirit and folk life of old Florida with live music, food, vendors and “old timey” craft demonstrations. Visitors can interact with skilled crafters to learn more about blacksmithing, making sugar cane syrup, cooking over an open hearth, log cabins, traditional Seminole cooking and arts, pioneer cattle and horses, spinning, weaving and quilting, and more.
