Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum April Calendar 2017
The Wild & Scenic Film Festival
April 8 @ 6:00 pm – 9:30 pm
The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is one of the nation’s premiere environmental and adventure film festivals in North America being hosted in our own backyard. These international short films are a call to action! Soul-stirring stories and grand sweeping vistas give us a sense of place and what it means to be responsible stewards of the earth. They illustrate not only the challenges facing our planet but the work communities are doing to protect the environment and the places we love. They also portray the magnetic draw of nature and the adventurous side of the human spirit.
We will once again be joined by local community organizations who will share with you how you can get involved in loving and caring for our earth. Palm Beach and Martin County High School students are extended a special invitation this year to get involved in our “Young Stewards of the Outdoors Video Contest.”
Films will be shown at the waterfront Lighthouse on the “big screen.” Food, sodas, beer & wine will be available for purchase. Live musical performance by the StratOlites. All proceeds support the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum. Bring beach or lawn chairs. Outside food & drinks and pets not permitted.
Gates open at 6:00 pm. Live & DJ Music 6:00-7:30. Presentation of the Outstanding Stewardship Award at 7:30 pm. Wild & Scenic Films begin after award presentation. Tickets are $10 per person and are limited, purchase online or at Door. Due to the limited availability of tickets, we recommend early ticket purchase, tickets are not refundable.
