Florida Flywheeler's 2018
February 21st-24th


Flywheeler's is a 300 plus acre outdoor event focusing on the mechanization of Florida over the last century. Lots to see and do for men and women, boys and girls of all age's 

It is a dry camping event so come with full water and empty dookie tanks. Golf carts will be available for rent but bring your own powered contraption if possible. Anything goes up to 5' wide, really!

Just a note to remind those attending Flywheelers that once you get in here during the day during the show hours of 9am 4pm, you cannot go back out during those hours unless it is an emergency, so I would suggest that you stop somewhere and get your supplies before you get here it saves a little frustration, otherwise you can go back out after 4pm to shop.

Featuring Implements, Stationary Engines & Ferguson Tractors 

Our 7th annual semi-organized Bluebird rally. We have worked with the Flywheelers staff and have again been graciously provided with our own dedicated Bluebird area. We had a good attendance in 2017. If you like old engines, tractors, cars, motorcycles, parts, bric-a-brac, flea markets, food, stuff, displays, period villages etc., come on down. A great time to do as little or as much as you would like. 240 acres of fun! Lots of things for the ladies to do to and you don't need a 'Bird to attend!

We would like to have a head count of those that plan on attending.
