Fiddler Crab Festival

Valentine’s weekend each year, Steinhatchee welcomes 10,000 visitors to the Fiddler Crab Festival. A whole row of food vendors offering funnel cakes and burgers to alligator and filet mignon. Art vendors from throughout the region set up shop and you have a chance to race tour very own fiddler crab. Saturday morning starts out with a true small town

Waiting for the parade to start at the community playground is a great option with kids

Steinhatchee Rocks

Steinhatchee has joined in the painted rock fun. If you haven’t seen these around, someone paints a rock and then “hides” it where someone else could come across it. There is a Facebook group at Steinhatchee Rocks where you can take pics of the rocks before you hide them or when you find them. If you find a rock, you take your picture and then rehide it for someone else to find. Check out this cute one we found by our playground.
