The 25th annual Weeki Wachee Swamp Fest was held at Linda Pedersen Park and featured an incredible lineup of bands and entertainment along with vendors, contests and food.



The Swamp Fest started as a fundraiser for the community in the wake of the No Name Storm in March of 1993. It was a neighborhood gathering and fish fry where they served up swamp cabbage to raise money to repair the roof on the Weeki Wachee Area Club.



The most anticipated part of the contest is always the swamp monster contest.
