Mount Dora Arts Festival is one of the biggest outdoor art festivals of the year


The lakeside Mount Dora Arts Festival provides beautiful art for your eyes, great music for your ears, and delicious food for your stomach as you walk through the historical streets of downtown Mount Dora. During this weekend, the city’s blocks are filled with seemingly endless rows of art stalls displaying paintings, sculptures, photography and more from about 300 local and national artists. Those with children can visit the KidsZone, which offers face painting, hair designs and caricatures, along with a butterfly encounter in Donnelly Park that anyone can enjoy.

9 a.m. Saturday-Sunday, Feb. 2-3 | Downtown Mount Dora, Donnelly Street and Fifth Avenue | 352-383-0880 | | free
