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 an all-day affair.

Entertainment and Activities

The Black Gold Jubilee is celebrating its 46th anniversary in 2024! The Jubilee includes several events such as a volleyball tournament, the Harvest Queen Pageant a parade, a car show and more. On the morning of the Jubilee, the festivities begin with a 5K Walk/Run and a 10K Run through some of the most beautiful views of Belle Glade. The course begins at the Drawbridge Restaurant, winds through the golf course, and up the Herbert Hoover Dike for a one of a kind running experience. 

The run is followed by the Main Street Parade, which is full of marching bands, floats, antique cars and more!

After the parade, a full day of entertainment begins! Enjoy a variety of food ranging from Greek to Cajun, and from down-home barbecue to soul food.

Kids can have fun participating in free games and rides, while the adults enjoy music and a wide variety of vendors.

This year, the festival will host Mark Chesnutt, one of Country’s true musical treasures. He has 14 No. 1 hits, 23 top ten singles, four platinum albums and five gold records to his credit.
