Fairchild's Annual Mango Festival
July 13 & 14, 2024
10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

The Annual Mango Festival - The Juiciest Event of the Year
Make way for the mango! Get ready for the most vibrant and juiciest event of the year. Our Annual Mango Festival is back! For three decades, Fairchild has been hosting this extraordinary festival to celebrate the beloved mango. Featuring hundreds of exotic mango varieties, this festival is the ultimate homage to the King of Fruit. 

Join us for a weekend as delicious as the mango itself, where you can tantalize your taste buds with an exotic array of fruit from Fairchild's Tropical Fruit Program, local fruit vendors, and world-renowned chefs!

Fairchild: The Home of the Mango Festival 
Fairchild’s fruit collection dates back to the Garden's origin, with mango trees planted by David Fairchild in 1936. Our expansive collection of award-winning cultivars from all over the world is our unique gift to share with the South Florida Community.

Not just an authority on mangos, The Fairchild Farm maintains a living genetic database for the Fairchild Tropical Fruit Program. This program is a pillar of conservation and shares the latest growing techniques for mangos, avocados, jackfruit, sapodilla, and more.
