Snowbird Extravaganza

Snowbird Extravaganza is the largest single gathering of Canadians outside of Canada and is one of the largest mature lifestyle events in the world.

This event combines a consumer show featuring products and services of local and national organizations with three stages of free live entertainment and feature areas including a Healthy Living Centre, a Memory Centre, Internet Café, The Hockey Hall of Fame and Animals of the World show.

Every year, tens of thousands of Canadian and American winter visitors migrate to the state of Florida to escape the cold winter weather of the north. Snowbird Extravaganza is a homecoming and a celebration of this unique way of life, the “Snowbird Lifestyle”.

Sponsors that made this event possible with their generous support include The Tampa Tribune, Medipac Travel Insurance, Manulife Financial, Publix, GlaxoSmithKline, Florida Lottery, Bright House Networks, Seaworld Adventure Park, Busch Gardens, Wyndham Vacation Rentals, Sleep Number, Prevagen, Express Travel, Paragon Casino, CSA Auto/Home Insurance and the Canadian Snowbird Association.
