What is the Dunedin Orange Festival? Growing oranges and celebrating commerce and the importance it’s meant to Florida is no surprise, but where and how did this festival that Indian River Select® Brand has been sponsoring every year come from?
Dunedin reflects the rich American and Scottish heritage of its founding fathers. This charming village like town has the distinction of being the oldest town south of Cedar Key. Early in its history, thanks to a dock built to accommodate schooners and sloops and the ingenuity of pioneers from as near as Georgia and as far as Scotland, Dunedin became one of Florida’s chief seaport and trading centers. At one time Dunedin had the largest fleet of sailing vessels in Florida. Early settlers were primarily cotton and citrus growers, and it is hard to envision that most of what is now downtown was once a big cotton field.
