Lake Placid, Florida is “The Caladium Capital of The World.” For any industry that makes such a mark on an area, there should be a festival celebrating it!

Lake Placid and the surrounding Sebring area are rich with natural beauty, excellent growing conditions, and talented people. While caladiums are the heart of our popular Caladium Festival, the event also highlights our creative community as well as our local heritage and culture.

Festival features:

  • Car & Bike Show on Saturday, July 27th

  • Floral Arrangement Competition: Sponsored by The Lake Placid Garden Club

  • Art & Craft booths, Food & Entertainment

  • Area’s Growing Grape Industry Wine Display

  • Florida Friendly Landscape & Ornamental Plants

  • Caladium Festival Art Competition

  • Caladium Field Bus Tours

  • Caladium Flyer Excursions on the Steam Engine Powered Sugar Express

             & Much More! We’re excited to celebrate our 33rd anniversary with you in 2024, so please make plans to join us!
