Mission Statement

jane austen logo largeIn an atmosphere welcoming to all levels of interest and curiosity, the Jane Austen Fest-Mount Dora strives to present a wide array of programs, presentations and 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 to that end we want to help today’s woman follow their passion by offering college scholarships as a out-growth of this festival.


A foot in the 21st Century and a toe in the Regency Era.
