White Squirrel Festival Blog

The Squirrel Festival is nutty, family fun over the Memorial Day Weekend. The music is the major showcase, giving prominence to national and even international performers who are connected to Transylvania County, with 14 free concerts! And there's plenty of food, art and crafts.

These are not albinos, but siblings to the gray Eastern tree squirrel. This particular species made its way to Brevard in 1949 as a result of a carnival wreck in central Florida.

The weekend would not be complete without the "Memorial Day" Parade organized by the American Legion and VFW. This tribute to our slain veterans kicks-off the festival on Saturday morning at 9 AM. The crowd-pleasing parade is followed by a "Presentation of the Wreath" at the county courthouse War Memorial. Be sure to check out the 5K and 10K White Squirrel races sponsored by the Rotary Club.
