Mission Statement

jane austen logo largeIn an atmosphere welcoming to all levels of interest and curiosity, the Jane Austen Fest-Mount Dora strives to educate by presenting a wide array of workshops, programs, and presentations in the excitement surrounding Jane Austen, the culture of the Regency Era, and the culture that evolved from it.

Jane Austen, as a woman, followed her passion and is a relevant role model for today’s women. And as an outgrowth of this Fest, we want to help today's woman follow her passion by offering college scholarships.
