The Central Florida city known for its vibrant festivals won’t disappoint in March. The historic streets of downtown Mount Dora will be awash with visitors again on March 18 and 19 during the annual Spring Festival of Arts and Crafts, the quaint city’s celebration of the arrival of spring. The free event showcases approximately 250 vendors selling a wide range of handmade creations, plus a variety of food vendors. In addition to the festival, downtown Mount Dora’s many unique stores and diverse restaurants will also be open during the festival to add to the experience. In 2020, Mount Dora’s Spring Festival, the event’s former incarnation, ranked #49 on Sunshine Artists Magazine’s list of Top 200 Contemporary/Classic Craft Festivals in America. The event was originally Mount Dora’s Antique and Collectible Show for several years.
The event’s hours are Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days. Admission is free and pets are discouraged. Arrive early for better public and private parking opportunities or watch for signs for the park-and-ride shuttles to the event.
