Happy Birthday George! The City of Eustis is gearing up to celebrate George Washington’s Birthday during a three-day family friendly event taking place February 22-24, 2019.  This occasion will mark the 117th year the city has gathered its community, neighboring cities and visitors from all over the country to honor one of our nation’s Founding Fathers and the first President of the United States.  Georgefest is the longest running celebration of George Washington’s Birthday in the State of Florida, and the second longest running celebration in the entire United States.

The theme for the 2019 festival is “Into the Future”.  We will be celebrating over 11 decades of Georgefest celebrations to the Eustis community and the opportunity to reflect on the national and local history.  

Georgefest will be held in the heart of Downtown Eustis, and will feature a carnival, live music, food, vendors and much more!  Fireworks will light-up the sky Friday night in Ferran Park and Saturday morning will kick-off with the Washington’s Birthday Celebration Parade.   This fantastic weekend will be filled with fun and activities for all ages.  We anticipate attendance to reach over 30,000 during the three-day extravaganza!

Everyone is invited to celebrate George Washington’s Birthday with the Eustis community.  This year will deliver fun, great entertainment and wonderful memories for years to come.
