Mount Dora Art's and Entertainment
In 1975, a group of art-loving citizens held the first Mount Dora Arts Festival. It was a small event, but it was a big success. They decided to have an Arts Festival every year.
In 1985, The Cultural Council moved into 138 East 5th Avenue. As time went by, more and more people joined the Cultural Council, and in 1986, the Board of Trustees resolved to change the name to Mount Dora Center for the Arts. The Mount Dora Center for the Arts has provided quality art experiences in the Lake County region of Central Florida ever since.
