The Florida Coastal Conservancy will hold its 2nd Annual Forgotten Coast Sea Turtle Festival from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. ET Sunday, July 2 in Port St. Joe.

The Festival will be located in Marina Cove and George Core Park overlooking St. Joseph Bay. The event will include live music, food, and beverages, and will take place rain or shine.

The purpose of this event is to educate attendees about sea turtles and the importance of the coastal habitats they and many other species call home.

In addition to raising environmental awareness, this event serves as a fundraiser for the Forgotten Coast Sea Turtle Center, located in George Core Park, and to raise funds to commission a sea turtle sculpture for the fountain located in Marina Cove, the site of this Festival.
