ManateeFest 2022

Stay tuned for information for ManateeFest 2023!

We celebrated Manatee Lagoon's sixth anniversary at ManateeFest 2022 on Saturday, March 26, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Manatee Lagoon. 

This FREE event was an annual celebration where visitors can come explore the wonders of manatees, the Lake Worth Lagoon and environmental conservation. It was our first-ever hybrid event, as ManateeFest was hosted both in-person and virtually (including a virtual storefront).
