Welcome

The Okeechobee Battlefield Friends, Inc are a support organization for the Park and coordinate the Annual Battlefield Re-enactment on this portion of the original battlefield site the last weekend of February. The re-enactment serves to heighten public awareness for this historic battle and the battlefield's plight as we strive to create a battlefield park.  The festival's success is a gauge of the public's willingness to support a future battlefield park and for this we thank all participants.

You Can Help! Support the Okeechobee Battlefield Friends by volunteering to help with the Re-enactment, attending the event, donating funds to support the activities of the Friends, and contacting your legislators to provide funding for development of the Park. Your assistance will be appreciated not only by the Okeechobee Battlefield Friends, but by the future generations who learn of our Florida history thru this historic state park.
