FlockFest was founded by Steven Crawford in 2014 as a small gathering of friends looking to do something fun and different. He contacted a bunch of his friends for a fun time at the beach, told them to bring swan floats and be prepared for a great time. As it grew each year, he thought this could be a great way to raise money for charitable organizations. 2018 was the first year to raise money for charities. Today, that is still our main purpose.
FlockFest is a strategic non-profit fundraising foundation that partners with other non-profits for transformational change. We plan, manage, and implement events that achieve fundraising goals and mission impact. FlockFest Ft. Lauderdale raises money for several local non-profit organizations. The idea that started in 2015 with a small number of floats has grown to over 500 floats and 1800 attendees in 2018. We are so grateful for the 20 local corporate sponsors that helped make this possible.
We look forward to growing FlockFest into a national organization and partnering with a wide variety of charitable organizations that work to create social justice and equality for all.
