Melbourne, FL Events: Florida Scrub-Jay Festival

There is only one bird that is endemic to Florida - the Florida Scrub-Jay. At the Florida Scrub-Jay Festival, you can celebrate the unique bird and everything that it does for the Florida ecosystem. It’s one of the Melbourne, FL events that you should mark on your calendar.

What is the Florida Scrub-Jay Festival?

This festival is not new to the area. For ten years, locals have been celebrating the bird. Sponsored by the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and the Titusville Area Chamber of Commerce, the event is fun for all.

This event is free and no tickets are required. It takes place at the Titusville Welcome Center, which is in Downtown Titusville. At the event, there will be live animals on display, nature exhibits, and crafts for kids. Additionally, tour guides will be available to show you the refuge. You can also enjoy a hike on one of the trails. Art lovers can enjoy the watercolor exhibit.

This year, the festival takes place on February 23. From 10:00am until 3:00pm, you can enjoy the festivities.
