Cooler weather doesn’t have to mean snuggling up with a warm mug by the fire or staying inside (although there’s nothing wrong with that).
There’s still plenty of time to enjoy fun outdoor events without driving into too far or spending an arm and a leg. Here’s a look at some of the most exciting upcoming fall events happening in (and around) Clermont this year!

Ongoing Fall Events You Won’t Want to Miss
As always, Downtown Clermont hosts their weekly Farmer’s Market every Sunday from 9am to 1pm. Stop by for some fresh produce, seafood and bread. Once there, you can also browse the specialty vendors, crafts and other artisan items before grabbing a bite from the many food trucks and enjoy the sights.
On the first Friday of each month, Clermont also hosts the First Friday Food Truck event where you can browse different eateries and taste a variety of cuisines. This event is perfect for groups as each person can order what they want before joining everyone at the same table!
