The 2015 Horse Creek Festival and Florida Heritage Invitational Art Show date to be announced
Davenport was originally named “Horse Creek” and the creek still runs clean and clear a little outside of town. This year's festival will feature many of the same events as the first two festivals and art show. The Horse Creek Corral has been one of the fun venues to visit for ages young and old. Lots of stories to share about Horse Creek and Davenport's early years. Florida Foods will be featured throughout the historic district and all things Florida old and new will add to the celebration.
The Buffalo Soldiers were at the Horse Creek Festival to share their heritage and told the story of the first regiments in Florida.
The 9th & 10th Regiment Cavalry Horse Association was the first to register a chapter of Buffalo Soldiers in the State of Florida. They were created after the Civil War and embarked from Tampa to the battlefield in Cuba. They distinguished themselves on the battlefield in Cuba and the Philippines earning 5 Medals of Honor for Valor at San Juan an El Caney.
