Free Mango Mania Festival

Summer in Miami means mango trees are filled with the ripe tropical fruit. Come celebrate this beloved sweet treat during the Mango Mania Festival 2021, set for 9 a.m.-4 p.m July 10-11 at Casaplanta Garden Center.

To keep up with latest news, sign up for the daily Miami on the Cheap newsletter. You can also follow us on Facebook and on Twitter and visit our Facebook group page.

The center’s two-day festival is honoring all things mango, with locally grown fruit and fruit trees to select from. Mango Mania will include:

  • Mango tastings of 15 varieties
  • 20+ varieties of mango trees for sale
  • Raffles for a chance to win free mango trees and mangoes
  • Vendor village with local food and beverage vendors
  • Kids’ arts project, in which they decorate their own plant pots
  • Live music

Admission is free, but the tasting event does require a ticket. Sample different varieties of mangoes by paying $6 a person. (Of course, you can enjoy the event without entering the tasting tent.) For information about tickets, click here

The Casaplanta Garden Center is at 6825 SW 127th Ave., Miami.

For another mango-filled event, check out Mango Days of Summer happening at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden kicking off the weekend of July 10 and runs each weekend from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
