    Military History Museum Military History Museum

    Military History Museum

    In the early 1940s, hundreds of Army fighter pilots came to Zephyrhills to hone their skills at the newly built Zephyrhills Army Airfield before going to war.

    After World War II, the airport was donated to the city. The barracks where the pilots lived have all been demolished with this infirmary building being the only survivor. From 1997 to 2001, state and city grants allowed for restoration and preservation of this building. The museum holds treasured memories of the World War II veterans who lived and trained in Zephyrhills and others who served in this and other wars.

    Participants are encouraged to take a tour of the Zephyrhills Museum of Military History, conveniently located just down the street from downtown!

  • Economic Impact


    PIG business is BIG business here in Zephyrhills. 

    Since 2010, BBQ & Blues has pulled more than 3 million dollars into the Zephyrhills area. Last year, the festival brought an estimated economic impact of $500,000 to our local economy. 

    Since its inception, BBQ & Blues has helped The Greater Zephyrhills Chamber of Commerce to provide approximately $40,000 in scholarships to Zephyrhills area students and given back over $100K to our community partners. 

    BBQ & Blues engages over 200 dedicated volunteers every year. The Greater Zephyrhills Chamber of Commerce has awarded more than $68,000 in donations to local 501(c)3 youth groups and charities that commit time and talent to create this successful event. 

    With 10,000-13,000 guests per year, BBQ & Blues has grown to become the most attended event in Zephyrhills. While nearly half of the participants are usually local, about 30% are regional and a surprising 20% are from out of state. BBQ & Blues helps put Zephyrhills on the map!
