Fort Mose was founded in March, 1738. Community citizens labored long hours during that year, building their homes and a fort, planting crops and tending livestock. They survived on food rations provided by the Spanish government, until they were able to harvest food from their own gardens.
Fort Mose First Harvest is a joyous event that recreates a typical autumn festival with 18th century Spanish Florida. This is an immersive experience, typically including reenactors in period dress, foodways demonstrations, militia muster, and traditional trades and crafts.
