Don’t Miss One of Flagler’s Most Popular Traditions: 8th Annual Creekside Festival October 6 & 7
Held along the stunning shores of Pellicer Creek, the Creekside Festival is an annual tradition that attracts 17,000 guests each year for family-friendly activities, live bluegrass music and more in a picturesque natural setting.
Your Creekside experience begins as you travel scenic Princess Place Road, cross the newly completed covered bridge and proceed to Princess Place Preserve, the crown jewel of Flagler County’s park and preserves. Here, visitors can explore the preserve’s many hiking trails, fish in salt marshes along the Matanzas River and Pellicer Creek, tour the historic hunting lodge or camp out under the stars.
