School Tours on the Thursday of Alafia

Each year on the Thursday of the Alafia River Rendezvous the Florida Frontiersmen invite hundreds of school age children to come and get a glimpse of America’s past.  Space is limited…so contact us early! Each group will have their own personal guide to the past and reservations are necessary. Please contact SchoolTours@floridafrontiersmen.com for more information.

Please Be Aware that No Pets are permitted during Public Days – Registered Service Animals are the exception

What There is To See

The purpose of our School Day is to give our children a chance to experience history first hand.  Blacksmiths, weavers, potters, rope makers, clothiers, all take time to demonstrate their art.  You can see everything from how a bow and arrows are made to our East Florida Frontiersmen demonstrate muskets and cannons.  Below are just a few of the sights at Alafia.
