Florida Holiday Traditions

See how Floridians celebrate different holidays. Do you now about the”Green Corn Dance”?


On holidays we commemorate significant historical events, celebrate new years or

new seasons, or honor our heritage. Using photographs from the past and present,

Holiday Traditions in Florida examines how Floridians have celebrated these special

days.  While not intended to be an exhaustive list, the exhibit covers a wide variety

of holidays observed in Florida.


Many holiday customs have roots in the ancient past. However, some holidays and

their traditions have come about fairly recently. The variety of holiday traditions in

Florida reflects the state’s cultural and ethnic diversity. Although Floridians may

celebrate different holidays or have different customs, holidays help to unite family,

friends, and neighbors and to strengthen our common bonds

Exhibit runs thru December 29.  Museum open Wednesday to Saturday from 11 am to 4 pm
