Kumquat Festival Around the Corner
Every January Florida kumquats are at the peak of ripeness and the delicious fruit is celebrated during a weeklong event in Dade City. The Florida Kumquat Festival will be held January 23-30, 2010. There are events almost every day, including the Kumquat Growers open house on January 28 & 29. Most of the festivities, though, occur on Saturday, January 30.
The Dade City Chamber of Commerce hosts the festival every year for a great number of happy festivalgoers who register for contests and make purchases from food and craft vendors. Why not take a road trip the last weekend of January to sample kumquats and kumquat products and celebrate the tiny fruit with the big flavor?!
