Kumquat Festival 2015 Is Saturday, January 31
The Annual Kumquat Festival is held in Dade City, FL. and is presented by the Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce. Dade City is on the eastern side of Pasco County. It is scheduled for 9am to 5pm on Saturday, January 31, 2015. The nearby town of St. Joseph is known as the Kumquat Capital of the World.
According to the Chamber, as many as 40,000 people attend with over 400 vendors. There will be entertainment, food, antique cars, arts and crafts and face-painting. Historic downtown Dade City is picturesque and still very much a “old-time” area.
Y’all know what a Kumquat is, right? It’s that little orange fruit that looks like a baby orange; you can make great marmalade from it.
Did you know that the kumquat peel is eaten along with the fruit? It contains flavonoid anti-oxidants, fiber, and essential oils.And Vitamen C and B Complex.
We plan on attending since we have never been to the Kumquat Festival.
