Right Whale Festival
The Right Whale Festival celebrates the annual return of endangered North Atlantic right whales and the beginning of right whale calving season off the coast of Georgia and northeast Florida. It’s a fun and free outdoor event for all ages and serves as an opportunity to expand awareness about the threats to these whales, such as accidental ship strikes and entanglement in fishing gear. Less than 550 right whales exist today and their home waters span the entire Eastern Seaboard of the U.S. and parts of Canada.
The Right Whale Festival attracts 5,000+ visitors each year!
Join us on Facebook and thank you for helping us spread the word.
The Festival is fun for all ages. Enjoy live music, food trucks, art and photography, water recreation displays and more while learning about the right whale.
