A three-acre event venue, wildlife farm, and car museum, Fantasy Farms in Ponte Vedra Beach, is a non-profit organization that rescues and houses exotic and endangered species, as well as a few older farm animals that needed homes. This multifunctional facility recently opened its doors for private tours and events.
More than 100 exotic birds, wallabies, inquisitive lemurs, an ocelot, horses, a few wandering peacocks, and the “king” of it all — Rocky, the capuchin monkey, are all cared for onsite at Fantasy Farms. Children and adult visitors to Fantasy Farms will be in awe of the colorful atmosphere and knowledgeable caretakers.
One of Colonel Sanders’ T-Birds, Bert Reynolds’ Rolls Royce, and Sonny Bono’s custom Cadillac are among the collection of rare vehicles housed at Fantasy Farms. And yes that is a pink Corvette on the roof of the garage!
Both the indoor and outdoor areas are lined with antiques and vintage collections of Pez dispensers, matchbox cars, cartoon figurines, and other items all curated by founder Louie Williams. Without his careful placement of items throughout the venue, the collection could easily feel overwhelming. Instead you feel like you are in a museum. Fantasy Farms would be a memorable place for a wedding reception, corporate function, or charity event. Schools can also schedule field trips for their students.
Animal lovers, car fanatics, or just anyone looking for something out of the ordinary will love this place! The rental fee for booking the venue and membership dollars go directly to maintaining the facility, and caring for and feeding the animals.
