word-treeWe’ve been receiving lots of great suggestions for our 2017 SCF Theme, keep them coming!

The Festival is proud of our heritage and welcomes our neighbors from SWFL to share in our joy and excitement during this special time of the year.

Nostalgia and magical experiences from Swamp Cabbage Festivals gone-by have fueled much of the feedback we’ve been receiving this year in response to theme suggestions through our FB page and through word-of-mouth.

We too, miss some of the things which made the Festival so much fun for all! During the 50th Anniversary Celebration, the Swamp Cabbage Festival Committee began the process of bringing the “magic” and “small town” feeling back to our event; which is why we started a FB page featuring old photos and memorabilia over the past 50 years and created our Block Party, for that smaller, more personable celebration.

In order to continue to provide this type of magical, small town experience for all festival attendees, from 1,000-50,000, we rely on the communities’ help.

We love hearing your suggestions and your memories, but we truly need volunteers to help make the Festival a success. We invite all interested in volunteering for the 2017 SCF to attend our planning meetings; they are open to the public. They are held the first Monday of each month at 6:30 PM at LaBelle City Hall. Due to the Holiday, the meeting for September was moved to 9/12, we hope to see you there!
