23rd Annual International Mango Festival

23rd Annual International Mango Festival

When: Saturday, July 11, 2015 9:30 AM to Sunday, July 12, 2015 4:30 PM

No other tropical fruit has the ability to bring together a community like the mango. Join us for two full days of mango festivities, all highlighting the king of tropical fruit. Our selection of mangos has been collected throughout the tropics and grown here in South Florida, following in the footsteps of David Fairchild. The festival features a variety of mango trees for sale, a fruit market, cooking demonstrations, lectures about growing mangos, educational activities, artisan vendors, delicious food and the world's largest mango auction! 

Mango Festival at Fairchild admission is included with Garden admission. $25 for non members and free for Fairchild Members. Tickets for non members can be purchased the day of the festival or pre-purchased below.
