Painting by Lauren Graham Cunningham – Booth D-050

February 7 and 8, 2015
Saturday and Sunday 10am to 5pm

 A juried fine arts festival, for art lovers, casual festival-goers and families, nothing compares to the Mount Dora Arts Festival.

Downtown Mount Dora, with its New England architecture and breathtaking views of Lake Dora is the backdrop for this event. In addition to the endless rows of fine art, including oil paintings, watercolors, acrylics, clay, sculpture and photography, the festival features local and regional musical entertainment at a main stage in Donnelly Park.

Festival food will be provided in separate food courts and local downtown restaurants offer a wide variety of cuisine. Be kind to your pets — leave them at home when you visit the Festival.
