Visiting the Barnacle

June 17, 2013

The Barnacle Historic State Park is a great place for a meeting, family reunion, outing with the kids and many other types of events. The house on the property dates back to 1891 and provides a look into historic Florida. With beautiful water views due to the location on the Biscayne Bake, this is a great place for many types of events.

Not only is the park available for private events, but it’s also home to many special public events throughout the year, including:

Cars and Cigars – June 16th from 11am to 4pm

This is the perfect event for Father’s day with plenty of classic cars on display and hand-rolled cigars available. The Cool Ol’ Dudes will provide live musical entertainment and you can bring your own picnic or purchase grilled burgers, hot dogs and more. Kids can make a gift for Dad and this event is included in the regular $2 park admission.

Old-Fashioned July 4th Picnic – 11am to 4pm

Come out and celebrate our country’s Independence Day with a picnic or a purchased lunch from The Barnacle Society. The event will feature a scavenger hunt, kids’ crafts, live music, games and more. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children 6 to 11 years of age.
