Black Gold Jubilee 2022 is almost here!

This year marks the 44th year of the jubilee and it promises to be eventful! From its beginning in 1978, the Black Gold Jubilee has grown to be the best attended festival in the area, it draws several thousand residents and visitors from across South Florida!

Scheduled each April, the Jubilee's celebration focus is on its namesake "Black Gold," a name given to the rich soil for its ability to produce bountiful harvests year after year.

This year the Jubilee is scheduled on April 2nd and will be preceded by multiple events including the Children's Fishing Contest, Night Time Golfing Tournament, the Little Miss Black Gold Pageant, and the Harvest Queen Pageant.

New, this year will be a mini concert the night before the Jubilee! On the morning of the Jubilee, festivities start with a 5K Walk/Run and 10K Run, at noon begins a day of fun, food, and entertainment. The day is completed with the grand finale - a spectacular fireworks display over the lake.
