Some of the best attractions for visitors to Mount Dora are our festivals. The city has 34 festivals throughout the year. We are considered a ‘Festival City’ and we offer a service in providing free festivals and events for the public’s enjoyment. The large events bring upwards of 250,000 people into Mount Dora, and the smaller events bring tens of thousands to town, benefitting our small businesses and vendors.
We have nine cornerstone events such as Light Up Mount Dora during the holidays, the African-American History Festival and growing Independence Day festivities that include fireworks over the Lake Dora.
