Black Gold Jubilee

April 17, 2021

Torry Island Recreation Center & Campground, 5000 West Canal Street North, Belle Glade, FL 33430

Celebrate Our "Country"

“Her Soil is Her Fortune!” This is how locals describe the historic city of Belle Glade, with its dark, rich, and incredibly fertile ground. To celebrate the annual end of the harvest season, the entire Glades Region – Belle Glade, Pahokee and South Bay – come together with friends and family for fabulous food, good ole’ country music, and lots more.

Homegrown Fun in The Glades

Watch the Main Street Parade, participate in the 5K Run/Walk or 10K Run on Torry Island, listen to live music – the 2021 will welcome country music sensation Sara Evans - and enjoy all the other family-friendly activities, rides and games at this all-day affair.

 What’s to Eat?

The Glades Region is “America’s Winter Breadbasket.” Just about everything grows here, from the famous sweet corn to tropical fruit to sugar cane. Foodies won't want to miss the Jubilee’s green market and Glades-style food booths, where you can sample everything from alligator to gumbo.  The Corn & Sweets Cook-Off will challenge chefs to create dishes featuring sugar and corn.

 Be an Insider

Giant Lake Okeechobee shines as a picture-perfect backdrop for Torry Island, which sits along the lake’s southern shores, the Gateway to the Florida Everglades. Watch alligators sunning on rocks, look up to see a variety of unique birds, take in the tropical flora and drop a line in the water, because Lake O has the finest bass fishing in the U.S. From Torry, you can get LOST – that is, hiking, biking, or horseback riding on the Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail, or LOST. On the trail, look west for striking sunsets and look east for first-rate views of this nationally important agricultural region.
