2022 Summer, Fall & Winter Events


MDBC is excited to announce our 2022 Summer, Fall & Winter schedule of events. We’ll be announcing more details for each outing throughout the next few months. As you’ll see, we’ll have a lot going on with activities every member of your family will enjoy. Please take a look and reach out with any questions. 


July 3rd: Cook-out & Fireworks: Our most popular event held here at the marina on our back porch and water patio. The City of Mount Dora is planning fireworks show over the water.
July 12th: St. Johns River Cruise to Silver Glen: We’ll tow our boats over the Ed Stone Park and take a leisurely cruise to Silver Glenn Springs. Watch our “Exploring Our Backyard Waterway’s” video to see why you don’t want to miss this adventure.
July 30th: Crystal River Scalloping: Another annual event returning for 2022. This makes for a wonderful day on the water combined with the added perk of catching your dinner! Some folks like to make this a weekend trip.


August 12th-14th: Orlando Boat Show: Come visit your favorite one-stop boating center at the Orlando Boat Show. We’ll have a great selection of new boats from Four Winns including the new H series bow riders as well as information on our new “Boat Share” leasing program. Learn More about Boat Share HERE.

August 20th: Dinner Cruise to Crazy Gator: Located on the northeastern shore of Lake Eustis, it’s a shorter boat ride but again, a great way to enjoy a summer evening with family & friends.


September 17th: Cruise to JB Boondocks: One of the best meals you’ll find on the Harris Chain. Join us for a wonderful evening cruise and a great dinner! Check out this video to see how fun our Dinner cruises are!


October 14th-16th: A new event for 2022, a weekend trip to River Ranch. We tow our boats to Big Toho Marina in Kissimmee Friday the 14th for a three-hour cruise through the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes to the Kissimmee River to West Gates River Ranch Resort. Lots to see and do at the luxury western theme resort including a Saturday night live Rodeo. We’ll pack up and cruise back home Sunday the 16th. Watch this “Exploring our Backyard Waterway’s” videos to see why you’ll want to be there.
October 28th: Halloween Wine Down: A wine tasting costume party featuring Maggie’s Attic. Their usual wonderful wine selection along with some great costumes made this an amazing event in 2020 & 2021. Should be bigger and better in 2022.


November 26th: Light Up Mount Dora: The official start of the Christmas Season in Mount Dora! At night, we’ll be lighting up Mount Dora Boating Center for the 25th year.


December 3rd: “Two-Fer”: The annual Lighted Boat Parade will take place as well as our Toys for Tots Night of Lights. From 6 to 9pm, the Marine Corp Reserve will be on-hand to welcome guests into the marina for the donation of a new unwrapped toy or cash donation. Come bring a toy for the kids and see the light display up close! You’ll get some great photos of family and friends with our light displays, scenes, and characters.
December 10th: MDBC Cares Light Nite: Year 2, we’ve partnered with Lake Cares Food Pantry for a Christmas collection event. They’ll be on-hand and to welcome guests into the marina for a canned good(s) or cash donation. Same as Toys for Tots, you’ll get some great photos!
December 17th: On the Water Christmas Movie Night – Come join us as we set up our big screen and enjoy a classic Christmas movie on the water! Watch our social media and help pick what the movie will be.

We’ll be updating our calendar and passing along more information as these dates get closer. In the meantime be watching for the RSVP emails and our announcements on our social media.

We’re really looking forward to hosting these events for you and the family’s enjoyment.
