Explore rocks, minerals and fossils, walk through the seasons of life as a bear, and wield magnetic wands. Get hands-on with marine tanks, slime and super-cold cryogens and enjoy games, models and crafts.
The Neighborhood Medical Center will be on site to administer COVID-19 vaccines, including boosters, to those eligible to receive them.
Due to the many generous sponsors, including the City of Tallahassee as the George Washington Carver Presenting Sponsor, our festival continues to be free-of-charge.
