Syrup Making

Watch how syrup is made. It takes 40 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of syrup, simply by boiling the sap to remove water and thus concentrate the sugar that makes maple syrup.

Sled Pulls

Come and see which tractor can pull the weighted sled the longest distance!


Kids Music Expo

Join us for the Suwannee Spirit Kid’s Music Camp Expo! See what the multi-year camps offer children that want to learn to play a musical intrument “hands-on” style. Camps are free to children 5-17 years of age and instruments are provided. Instruction is available for guitar, fiddle, banjo, harmonica, ukulele, drums and vocals. This Expo does not require a reservation.


Blacksmithing is the art of forging metal using tools like hammers and anvils to make objects, such as hinges, nails, hammers, and more. It was a common practice before the industrial revolution when most towns had their own town blacksmith shop, also known as a “village smithy.”

Saw Mill Operation

A sawmill works by cutting logs into lumber using large bandsaw blades. The same process is repeated over and over, log by log, to produce high-volumes of rough cut lumber. An amazing sight to see.

Join us for a magical wonder under millions and millions of lights at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida. Cruise through the mile long path of Christmas light displays, sing along with local musicians around the campsite, visit Santa at the Country Store, visit our crafters in the Craft Village, rock out with the puppetone rockers and enjoy delicious snacks at Santa’s Goodie Shop. Suwannee Lights is open 6pm-10pm nightly beginning on November 20, 2022 through December 30, 2022.
