Festivals in Jensen Beach


Select Local Merchants

The Florida Renaissance Festival is a wholly different world??a world of jousts and costumes and turkey legs. Here be dragons, or so the armor-clad knights would have you believe. At the festival, live shows recreate the romance of the Renaissance with references to Shakespeare and swordplay on 12 different stages. Meanwhile, merchants share the secrets of their crafts, blowing unbreakable glass for spectators and selling hammered pewter goblets. Visitors, dressed in period garb or not, can wander on their own, exploring the shows and stalls, or trying their hands at games of chance while gnawing on scotch eggs and chocolate cheesecake.

Snakes slither in glass display cases, and lizards wriggle in the hands of trained handlers as they're held up in full view of a curious crowd. This is the scene as one of Repticon's presenters educates attendees on the biology, behavior, and typing speeds of exotic cold-blooded creatures at one of the year-round shows held in cities across the country. Reptile and amphibian breeders, scholars, and handlers engage audiences in lectures and demonstrations in the midst of live reptile exhibits, family activities, and displays for exotic-pet supplies. Presentations may focus on the genetics of large snake species, the specifics of exotic-pet care, and the effect that tiny hats have on the image of arachnids such as tarantulas, scorpions, and spiders.

The Jupiter Seafood Festival blends fish and fun in a three-day event. Vendors sell nautical wares as booths shell out helpings of local, fresh seafood, including crawfish, mussels, crab cakes, and scallops. Kids and adults who have memorized the entire Nickelodeon cartoon lineup can participate in child-friendly activities, and people of any age can boogie to the live music from bands such as Boxelder, the Blues Brothers Soul Band, and a Tom Petty and Billy Joel tribute band, who will play all weekend to keep the party going.
