June 2019 festivals in Florida


Hukilau, June 5-9, 2019, Fort Lauderdale
Hukilau brings its blend of nostalgia and hipness to Fort Lauderdale every year. They chose this place because Fort Lauderdale is home to one of the best preserved examples of the original tiki bars, the Mai-Kai restaurant. This four-day festival celebrates mid-century modern culture, especially Polynesian tiki bars.

Waterlily Celebration, Saturday, June 15, 2019, Vero Beach
In June, the waterliilies are in full bloom and McKee Botanical Gardens, an unusual historic garden in Vero Beach that was once a popular roadside attraction, opens early for a celebration. The gardens are a little-known gem worth discovering.
