Forest Acres Festival


Every May, The Rotary Club of Forest Acres helps us celebrate everything we love about Forest Acres with family and friends.

The Forest Acres Festival is a FREE, day-long, family-friendly, fun-filled event geared towards families with children 10 years old and younger.

The 2018 festival will be held Saturday, May 19th at A.C. Flora High School from 10am to 4pm. Families will enjoy FREE admission, FREE carnival rides, FREE face painting, FREE live music and much more! While you are there, you can purchase delicious food and drink from an array of local restaurants and eateries. So grab your friends and head out for a day of FREE, wholesome family fun!

 Note to Sponsors: The Forest Acres Festival understands that our sponsors play a large role in our success.  Over the years we have made every effort to ensure that our sponsors receive impressionable advertising and marketing media for the money, products and services that are donated to our festival.  We offer a range of sponsorships to fit all economic needs.  This year we have reconfigured our sponsorship levels to maximize impact for our sponsors to participate in our festival.  For more information on sponsorship please contact Russell Holbrook at

We had a great time this year at the 2016 Forest Acres Festival!  Here are a few images from the day’s festivities.
