CANCELLED - 54th Annual Rattlesnake Festival

 —  —

Pasco County Fairgrounds, 36722 State Road 52, Dade City, FL 33525

Come join us for our first time attending this event which is sponsored by The Thomas Promise Foundation.

The San Antonio Rattlesnake Festival began in 1967 as a small Jaycee project in San Antonio, Florida. In 1973, arts and crafts were added as an important part of the event. The Rattlesnake and Gopher Enthusiasts (R.A.G.E., Inc.) managed and grew the event successfully until 2012. From 2012 - 2016, the festival was managed by Rotary Clubs as a fund raiser for local charities and in 2017 the Thomas Promise Foundation stepped in to continue this great community festival. This year the festival will move to the Pasco County Fairgrounds to allow for ease of parking and festival growth, but the traditional activities will remain central to the event.

Food, arts & crafts, live music, wildlife, children’s games, and local history are highlighted each year. Family fun and entertainment are a main focus of the event. Note: Hours for Saturday are 9 am to 6 pm and Sunday 9 am to 5 pm.
