Mount Dora is known for its charm and antiquing, but one of the biggest draws to this historic community just northwest of Orlando is its annual craft fair, which draws over 325,000 visitors.
The event takes place October 22 and 23 at Donnelly Park in downtown Mount Dora, from 9am to 6pm on Saturday, and 9am to 5pm on Sunday.
This year marks the 27th anniversary of the Mount Dora Craft Fair and there will be over 350 artists and craft vendors in attendance. This is a great opportunity to do some early Christmas shopping.
Both days will also feature live entertainment from local musicians like Hindu Cowboys, The Watermelon Revolution, Rio, Bobby Blackmon, and Jacqueline Jones. Music starts at 11am each day.
Arrive early either day of the fair and take advantage of the $5 breakfasts presented from 7-10am at the historic Donnelly House. They’ll also be offering $3 lunch specials from 11am-2pm both days.
The Mount Dora Craft Fair is free to attend.
