About Janet and Brian


Our first coordinated effort to create an event that would help bring people into town was “Paws for Mount Dora” in 2009. The event led visitors to local shops once a month with their pets to get a stamp then return with their card to win prizes. You had to be present to win so it forced visitors to shop and eat lunch in town until the drawing. 

This was a video we made for the event

Today Brian and I coordinate multiple events for multiple organizations including Visit Mount Dora, the City of Longwood, Apopka and Mount Dora Friends of the Environment. 

The Mount Dora Craft Fair was ranked the #1 All-Time Favorite Arts & Crafts Festival by Sunshine Artist magazine in its 50th anniversary issue August 2021
