Get on Board for the Celebration!


Yulee Railroad Days has been celebrated the first weekend in June, beginning in 2004. The linear festival follows the route of the historic cross-state Florida Railroad, and an array of events showcases the rich historical, cultural, and natural attractions of the heart of North Florida.


Since 1995, Yulee Day had been celebrated in the City of Archer. In 2004 the festival expanded into a three-day event involving historic towns in Alachua County and its environs that owe their existence to the railroads. Other cities and towns along the Florida Railroad’s route also joined for a truly regional celebration, tracing the Florida Railroad’s original route, stretching 155 miles from the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico.
