Where: Elizabeth Evans Park 100 N. Donnelly Street, Mount Dora, FL
The 3rd Annual Mount Dora Blueberry Festival comes to the shores of Lake Dora at Elizabeth Evans Park in Mount Dora, FL April 29-30, 2017. Long known as The Festival City for its many and varied festivals, Mount Dora will host what is destined to become a large, economically important festival celebrating the growing agricultural importance of blueberries to the Central Florida economy. Since the demise of citrus throughout much of Florida, blueberry fields full of berry varieties developed specifically for the Florida climate have supplied the growing demand for fresh home-grown fruit on consumers' tables. With a current crop totaling about 17 million pounds, we have a long way to go to equal the 100 million pounds produced in neighboring Georgia. We will catch up and, in time, exceed Georgia. Help in the effort to make blueberries a major agricultural crop in Florida. Visit the Mount Dora Blueberry Festival.
