Florida Heritage Month

During Florida Heritage Month (March 15–April 15) the Department of State encourages a better understanding of and appreciation for Florida’s history and culture among the people of our state. This month-long tribute is designed to heighten awareness of our state’s rich cultural heritage, celebrating its historical sites, museums, libraries, and the visual and performing arts, which flourish in the state of Florida.

Residents and visitors will have special opportunities to experience and celebrate the wealth of historical sites, cultural activities, and literary programs throughout the state. This will encourage an understanding and appreciation of Florida’s commitment to supporting historic preservation, arts and culture, and libraries as important fiscal tools that create economic vitality, quality of life, and community pride.
