Vendors, demonstrators needed for 1800s-themed Festival at Fort King

An 1800s-themed festival is returning to Fort King in early December, and the City of Ocala Recreation and Parks Department is looking for vendors and demonstrators that would like to take part in the two-day event.

This historic-themed festival will be held on Saturday, December 2 and Sunday, December 3, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Fort King National Historic Landmark, which is located at 3925 E Fort King Street in Ocala.

During both days of the event, attendees will have a chance to step into life at Fort King in the early 1800s. Local history will be brought to life with a re-enactment of the events that fueled the start of the Second Seminole War.
