Autumn may be upon us but the battlefield is still covered in wildflowers! The serene beauty of the park is perfect for a picnic and a hike through history. Take a step back in time and become acquainted with one of Florida's largest civil war battles. Learn about our famous Battlefield by mingling with Civil War Reenactors, living historians, period artisans, and sulters at the Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park during the Battle Reenactment every February and the Expo in September!

- Florida State Parks Pet Policy
- Pets are not permitted at the annual reenactments of the Battle of Olustee, held in February each year. Large crowds, heavy pedestrian traffic and repeated loud noise created by cannons and muskets firing black powder charges make it an inhospitable environment for pets. Pets are permitted at the park any other time of the year.
