Every July, Gay Fort Lauderdale celebrates “Flockfest” — a unique and fun weekend of beach events and parties. FlockFest is FREE and really more of an informal gathering. However, you can buy VIP packages that include: open bar and food, access to FlockFest Float, gift bag with FlockFest swag and access to the Appreciation Party. All money raised goes to several local non-profit organizations. Win-win.
