Organized by the Lemon Bay Historical Society, annual Cracker Fairs are our gift to the community. Admission is free. The Cracker Fair is the culmination of Lemon Bay Fest, a week of celebrating Englewood’s history produced by the 2 Englewood libraries. The Fair is also a fund-raiser for our community programs and our mission to preserve the fascinating history of the Lemon Bay area.
Each year there are food vendors, live performers, crafts, demonstrations, authors, artists and activities for children. In past years attendees enjoyed lemon desserts, sampled swamp cabbage, watched the Bit of Hope Ranch give a whip-cracking demo, learned how to throw a cast net and interacted with animals brought by the Peace River Wildlife Center.
Become a Sponsor of the Fair to help celebrate our historic Englewood community!
