Dunedin Orange Festival
The Dunedin Orange Festival is a family friendly summertime event centered around the history of the city and the citrus industry. This annual fund-raiser for the Dunedin Museum resembles an old fashioned family event from the days past. Vintage cars, swing music and pinup ladies wandering the venue all bring a bit of nostalgia to the town.
The purpose of these festivals is to bring the community together to enjoy the city’s beautiful green waterfront park while meeting local artisans, arts & craft merchants, budding new entrepreneurs, all while sampling local restaurant’s cuisines focusing on … seafood. Although mostly attended by locals, these festivals have grown popular among our northern states visitors for baseball’s spring training (home of the Blue Jays) and travelers from all four corners of the Earth
