Every October, Mount Dora’s downtown streets are flooded with more than 400 of the best craft vendors in the country. This year, the Mount Dora Craft Fair 2023 is back at it! In addition to crafts, the festival offers food vendors, music, and a kid zone to give everyone a break!
When is the Mount Dora Craft Fair?
Date: October 22 – 23

This is a FREE event!
The Mount Dora Craft Fair is held throughout the streets of Downtown Mount Dora. The map below will take you to the general vicinity, and you can find parking from there. We promise you won’t be able to miss it!
You will find parking available throughout the downtown streets of Mount Dora. Be sure to bring cash since many of the public spaces will already be full. Residents will often allow parking in their yards but expect a fee of $5 – $15, depending on location.
Shuttles will be available between 9:00 am to 5:30 pm Saturday and Sunday. You will find the vacant lot located at 900 Lincoln Ave. The parking/shuttle fee is $10 per car and will be collected by Kiwanis.
Mount Dora High School (700 North Highland Street, Mount Dora) offers to park a few blocks from the festival. Please note shuttles are not available this year. The parking fee is $10 per car and benefits the JROTC program, and provides for teacher supplies.
Mount Dora Christian Academy (301 W. 13th Ave Mt Dora, FL 32757) will also offer shuttled parking. A fee of $10 per car will be collected by MDCA. Proceeds will benefit a variety of school programs.
