Art lovers will make their pilgrimage to Mount Dora on February 4 and 5 when the 42th Annual Mount Dora Arts Festival returns.
Painters, jewelers, sculptures, and potters from across the country will exhibit and sell their fine art, while competing for top prizes. Artists are awarded cash prizes totaling $21,000.
Mount Dora has an artsy reputation and visitors often enjoy the atmosphere, as much as the diverse art. During the festival, visitors fill downtown's boutiques and restaurants that line the streets of the festival. Musicians will provide free entertainment at the Donnelly Park Stage from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm on both Saturday and Sunday.
