About Us:

The Olustee Festival is held in Downtown Lake City, FL at Olustee Park. The annual event draws in thousands upon thousands of visitors to the festival and park. Downtown you will see vendors and crafters, historical displays, entertainment, the annual parade, Lake De Soto skirmish and much more! The re-enactment is located at nearby Olustee Battlefield State Park, Florida's first state park! Thousands of re-enactors from all over the Southeast encamp across the hallow ground that the battle took place on, some 150 years ago. Once stepping into the park you are transported back in time as you take in the sights and sounds of the re-enactment. Medical demonstrations, cavalry tactics, artillery firings, army encampments, drill and ceremonies and much more cover the three day event! Battles take place on Saturday and Sunday. The official re-enactment of the Battle of Olustee takes place on Sunday. Come out and see this important part of Florida's history!
