Springtime Tallahassee

Tallahassee shows off its Southern hospitality and high spirits March 31-April 1 with one of the largest and most celebrated festivals in the Southeast: Springtime Tallahassee.

The two-day event kicks off with a Music Festival on Kleman Plaza featuring country music star EASTON CORBIN on Friday night and a fireworks show.

Saturday begins with our Grand Parade of more than 100 festive entries, followed by the famous Jubilee in the Park featuring hand crafted items, a Children’s Park, and local entertainment stages in downtown Tallahassee.

It’s no wonder the city’s “little event” has grown to attract more than 200,000 attendees.
