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
