Special Event

Flamingo Fest!

January 14th & 15th, 2023
9:30am - 4:30pm

Celebrate the great pink bird at the return of Flamingo Fest at Flamingo Gardens! Children and adults alike will present their most creatively decorated pink flamingo lawn ornaments on display throughout the gardens, and guests are invited to vote for their favorites. Cash prizes will be awarded to the winners in several categories.

Flamingo Fest weekend will feature flamingo inspired arts & crafts vendors, music, live painting, flamingo talks, food and more. The centerpiece of Flamingo Fest is the Fabulous Flamingo Contest, whose theme this year is “Masterpiece!” – a flamboyance of yard flamingos decorated as famous artists, artworks and styles of art. Entry is free and applications are available online, here, and at the Flamingo Gardens’ Welcome Center.

While you’re here, check out the Gallery exhibit “Flamingos: A Party in Pink” – a display of finalists and winners of the Flamingo Gardens annual photo contest.
