9th Annual St. Lucie County Safety Festival
The 2023 Safety Festival will be held Saturday, April 29th, 2023.
Dramatic live demonstrations headline the 9th Annual Safety Festival. This unique event brings multiple First Responder agencies together in one location to show what they are doing to keep our community safe. The Safety Festival will be held on Saturday, April 29 at Clover Park (home of the Mets).
The Safety Festival will feature exciting and dramatic SWAT demonstrations by the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office and the Port St. Lucie Police Department. They will showcase the training, planning and precise teamwork it takes for a successful mission. There will also be a bomb disposal demonstration, K-9 demos and the Port St. Lucie Police motorcycle unit will wow the crowd with their control of the big machines.
The Safety Festival begins at 9am and includes a variety of static displays featuring everything from brush trucks, helicopters and armored personnel carriers to pumper trucks, ambulances and virtually every other type of vehicle used to keep us safe. Many of the displays will include touch-a-trucks where attendees can climb on and get familiar with the vehicles.
In addition, the Festival features a FREE kids zone with bounce houses, face painters and more. Food trucks, vendors, and plenty of giveaways. Safe Kids will give away free booster seats to qualified children while supply last. One thousand SL Mets tickets will be given away, and many other items and information will be available.
A new feature this year is the first ever Wharton-Smith Fun Run for Education, sponsored by the Education Foundation. The run is the culmination of a student fundraiser with proceeds benefitting St. Lucie Public School, teachers and students.
