Become A Cracker Fair Sponsor

On February 9, 2019, the 17th Annual Cracker Fair, a celebration of Old Florida, is coming to Pioneer Plaza on Dearborn Street. Organized by the Lemon Bay Historical Society, it is the culmination of a week of celebrating Englewood’s and Florida’s history. The Fair is a fund-raiser for our community programs and our mission to preserve the rich history of Englewood.  There will be food vendors, live entertainment, 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 the historic Englewood community!
For just $100 you will be listed on a Sponsor Banner on the large sound stage at Pioneer Plaza. As the Cracker Fair is the culmination of the annual week-long Lemon Fest you will also be listed in the Fest program which is placed at both Englewood libraries and the Chamber office as well as other locations. Your company’s name will be announced on stage during the event and included in publicity as well as on the Historical Society’s website ( and our Facebook page.
The Society is a not-for-profit 501 (c)(3) corporation founded in 1985. Our purpose is to preserve Englewood area’s history and to educate the public about our past through our programs, books, and open houses. One of our latest and most successful area restoration projects was saving the Historic Green Street Church by moving it from leased land to property we own on Indiana Ave. A COPY OF THE OFFICIAL REGISTRATION AND FINANCIAL INFORMATION MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE DIVISION OF CONSUMER SERVICES BY CALLING TOLL-FREE (1-800-435-7352) WITHIN THE STATE.
