Kumquat Festival Jan 31, 2015Y’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. And lots of other tasty stuff.

 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.

Did you know that kumquat peel is eaten along with the fruit? It contains flavonoid anti-oxidants, fiber, and essential oils.And Vitamin C and B Complex.
