OBHS Florida History & Cultural Festival

Visit Website Email

Folklorist Diane Jacoby tells the story, while in tantalizing period dress, of the life of the elegant 16th century Spanish noblewoman, Dona Maria de Menendez, illegitimate daughter of Don Pedro Menendez de Aviles, in the tiny colony of Santa Elena as well as the noble life she left behind in Espana. Although known as La Bastarda, she was raised within the family of her renown father, the Governor General of La Florida, the Adelantado, the founder of St. Augustine and Protector of the Holy Catholic Church. The history & cultural festival will also include several museums, authors, artists, and historical artifact collectors and exhibitors, all offering various items for sale. Since there will be plenty of items to purchase you might even be able to find unique Christmas presents. The Ormond Beach Historical Society will be providing free food, coffee, water and a cash “donation” wine bar as well.
