The kumquat may be a tiny fruit, but it is at the center of a big festival in its honor in Dade City.

Tens of thousands head to Pasco County each year for the Kumquat Festival, where attendees can taste a variety of treats made from the little fruit that's sweet on the outside and tart on the inside. Visitors can try sweet and savory options, including sauces, pies and even Kumquat beer.

In addition to kumquat-themed foods, festival goers can also visit arts and crafts vendors and enjoy live entertainment.

This year's festival will be held on Saturday, Jan. 26 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission and parking are both free.
