No Shortage of Fantastic Entertainment
The Big Cypress Anniversary Celebration seeks to preserve some very important values; integrity, culture, heritage and tradition. What’s the best way to achieve that? Exhibiting Florida Seminole customs in the most fun way possible! Alligator wrestling with Freestyle Alligator Wrestling Competition, exhibits and displays from the Seminole Tribe’s owned Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki museum, carnival rides, traditional Native American shows, Seminole arts and crafts and plenty of delicious Seminole (and American fare) will be available. All-day entertainment also means the Celebration has prepared more than 6 hours of back-to-back live concerts for no additional fees. This year their lineup features critically acclaimed country singer Gary Allan, as well as Jimmie Allen, High Valley, Corey Smith, and Supaman.
