City Temporarily Suspends Events

Out of an abundance of caution, the City of Mount Dora is temporarily suspending Special Events in the City. The suspension affects the following: Downtown areas, including all City parks, Sunset Park Downtown, alleyways and other City facilities, and the W.T. Bland Public Library. Click here for more information.

The City hosts over 30 events throughout the year, enriching the lives of residents, bringing tens of thousands of visitors to the City, and benefiting local nonprofits, small businesses, and vendors. Community favorites include Light Up Mount Dora, where the entire City is decked out in holiday decorations; Snow in the Park, which allows many local children to go sledding in Donnelly Park in the heart of downtown; and Freedom on the Waterfront, which showcases an incredible fireworks show on Lake Dora. Our Back to School Rally and African American History Festival bring the community together for family-friendly activities. Mount Dora also hosts several large festivals, such as the Arts Festival sponsored by Mount Dora Center for the Arts, and the Craft Fair sponsored by Visit Mount Dora.

From 5Ks and bicycle festivals to wine walks and pet-friendly activities, we offer something for everyone. Special events play a large role in making Mount Dora "Someplace Special."
