June Events and Festivals in Florida

Summer is in full bloom in Florida! It's the season of watermelons, pride, sun, and fun! Now that you've got extra free time, check out some these festivals for a great way to spend a day. 

See our June Event Guide for a complete listing of Events and Festivals happening in June.

Outdoors in Florida in June

Florida is awesome because we have outdoor events all year long. Summer break for students starts at the end of May to early June so the locals are out of school and ready to explore activities for the summer. Keep in mind, the summers in Florida are hot, humid and often have afternoon thunderstorms. So dress appropriately for the summer heat, drink lots of water, keep your skin sunscreened, and be ready for the rain. Despite the heat, June events are fabulous and fun in Florida. 

Theme Parks & Attractions

Most theme park take a break with special events and festivities over the summer, however, the Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot is now extended thru July 4th. June is also Pride month at Disney with Gays Days varying from year to year and group to group. Keep in mind that June starts the busy summer season so the parks will be crowded with longer wait times. 

June is the month to hit to water parks! If the heat is too much for you to take, then June is your time to get in the cool waters of Florida's plethora of Water Parks. And if you love the water, get to any of the beaches around Florida and enjoy the nice warm waters this time of year. You can also avoid the heat by checking out indoor museums. See what events are happening on their websites.
