Mt. Dora Blueberry Festival

Mt. Dora is turning blue this weekend.  In 3 short years, the Annual Mount Dora Blueberry Festival in Evans Park on Lake Dora has become a favorite Central  Florida event.

This 2 day event brings out thousands of attendees, several local blueberry farms, and all things blueberry.

The perfect way to start the day at the Blueberry Festival is with a stack of blueberry pancakes Saturday and waffles on Sunday, thanks to IHop.

The event is growing every year with more blueberry farms selling berries, baked treats, blueberry plants, and so much more.

Our amazing local blueberry farmers have plenty of berries to sell this year.   The fields are full. 

Interested in incorporating some blueberry bushes into your landscaping, you will have an opportunity to learn how and purchase bushes from a local nursery.

Here is some great resources before you purchases bushes.
