Oh, October! Just breathing the cool, crisp fall air makes you want to get outdoors and enjoy the many fairs and festivals around Lake County. Historic Downtown Mount Dora will host its fun and famous 32nd annual Craft Fair from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 22-23.
With 350 of the best crafters in the country, this nationally-ranked juried event draws more than 250,000 festival enthusiasts each year. This event has everything from sculptures to woodworking, ceramics to paintings and rare gifts (artist-made jewelry) for early-bird Christmas shoppers. If the autumn air, laden with smells of Kettle Korn, corn dogs, and waffle cakes whets your appetite for festival food, the many food vendors will be on hand to make your wish a reality.
You may find the streets are a bit crowded, so there’s always time to visit the eclectic shops that make downtown Mount Dora so special. To learn more, go to visitmountdora.com or call 352.217.8390.
